About this resource:
FPP was founded in 1990 in response to the forest crisis, specifically to support indigenous forest peoples’ struggles to defend their lands and livelihoods. Forest Peoples Programme has grown into a respected and successful organisation that now operates right around the tropical forest belt where it serves to bridge the gap between policy makers and forest peoples. Through advocacy, practical projects and capacity building, FPP supports forest peoples to deal directly with the outside powers, regionally, nationally, and internationally that shape their lives and futures.
FPP organises its work into three sub-programmes on: Legal and Human Rights, Environmental Governance, and Responsible Finance; and into three cross-cutting themes on: Climate and Forests, Communications, and Administration.
