1. What does Rainforest Foundation Norway work with?
Rainforest Foundation collaborates with local communities and organizations fighting to preserve the forest and its astonishing diversity of animal and plant life. We work together to ensure that the local communities get the rights they need to the forest and the natural resources, which is their livelihood. We work to stop logging and plantation- or production companies that demolish the rainforest and investors who finance the destruction.
2. Why did Rainforest Foundation Norway choose to become a member organization of PWYP Norway?
Rainforest Foundation is affiliated with PWYP Norway because transparency in financial transactions and investments are an important tool in the fight to stop the destructive logging, mining and trading of resources obtained illegally from rainforests.
3. What is the added value of PWYP Norway for the Norwegian civil society?
PWYP Norway forces Norwegian organizations' expertise and impact. Because the transparency of financial transactions is a key issue in many fields of international environment and development policy, it is resource-efficient to work together in a targeted network.
