Focus: Indigenous Peoples' Rights
The mission of the Rainforest Foundation is to support Indigenous and traditional peoples of the world’s rainforests in their efforts to protect their environment and uphold their rights by assisting them in:
Securing and controlling the natural resources necessary for their long term well being and managing these resources in ways which do not harm their environment, violate their culture or compromise their future; and
Developing the means to protect their individual and collective rights and to obtain, shape and control basic services from the state.
