Man measures tree diameter

Many developing countries face a troubling dilemma when it comes to addressing climate change and sustainably managing their forests. The loss of forestland often accounts for a large portion of greenhouse gas emissions, yet the need to feed growing populations and provide economic opportunities fuels greater deforestation. Winrock has extensive experience in Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+), including advising policymakers in Vietnam and Bangladesh about effective financing mechanisms that promote forest health while maintaining livelihoods for local residents. Our work also includes a strong training and capacity building component to help governments and private enterprises make smart decisions about land and resource use.
