REDD Web Platform: Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)
CIFOR advances human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity by conducting research to inform
policies and practices that affect forests in developing countries. CIFOR helps ensure that
decision-making that affects forests is based on solid science and principles of good governance, and
reflects the perspectives of developing countries and forest-dependent people. CIFOR is one of 15
centres within the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research.
