Gender is a high institutional priority for CIFOR. We integrate it into our work in two ways: through research projects specifically designed to inform gender-equitable policies, and through our gender integration team, which works with scientists to ensure gender is firmly rooted in all of CIFOR’s research and engagement activities.
“If we don’t take a gendered approach [to REDD+], we’re likely to do more harm than good for women”
CIFOR envisions a more equitable world where forestry and landscapes enhance the environment and well-being for all.
CIFOR advances human well-being, environmental conservation and equity by conducting research to help shape policies and practices that affect forest landscapes in developing countries. CIFOR is a member of the CGIAR Consortium. Our headquarters are in Bogor, Indonesia, with offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
