NICFI’s overall goal is to contribute to the reduction and reversal of tropical forest loss to enable a stable climate, preserved biodiversity and sustainable development. To succeed, we must forge a new relationship between humans and nature. We need to transform the world’s food system and the global trade of commodities.

With international support, tropical forest countries must improve the use of their lands and build a prosperous rural economy without deforestation. Meanwhile, global commodity markets that currently drive deforestation must support their efforts by increasing demand for sustainable products.

NICFI can only succeed as part of a global movement that brings together governments, businesses, indigenous peoples and civil society. Our mandate is to be ambitious and take calculated risks. Not all partnerships will succeed, but the portfolio as a whole will deliver breakthroughs.
