We support Members of National Parliaments from Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe with the implementation of policies that ensure the reversal of deforestation and forest degradation. Based on the findings from our Future Policy Award 2011, we use key tools such as Inter-Parliamentary Hearings, to bring together MPs, experts, activists and youth representatives to discuss and learn from exemplary forest policy.
In 2011, Rwanda won the Future Policy Award. Our work therefore focuses on key success factors of Rwanda’s forest policy such as landscape management and policy implementation. Our second focus is on charcoal, which is turning into the biggest driver of deforestation on the continent.
