How RECOFTC and community forestry contribute to the Global Goals
RECOFTC’s work revolves around helping countries and communities achieve the Global Goals on poverty, hunger, the environment, climate change, gender equality and decent work. The Global Goals are also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs.
Our entry point to sustainable development and climate change solutions is community forestry. We work at the forefront of modern global development in the Asia–Pacific region, where some of the world’s most diverse and unique landscapes are at risk of destruction. We build the capacity of communities and transform conflict into collaboration.
This report describes the links between RECOFTC’s fiscal year 2020/2021 work and the Global Goals. It shows how we help to achieve a world where people live equitably and sustainably in and beside healthy, resilient forests, and ultimately a planet fit for the next generations.
