Today marks the start of World Forest Week and the FAO Forestry Summit in Rome. So we’re sharing this virtual tour through the Congo Basin – a chance to see sustainable forestry in action.

Walter Méndez Barrios, a fearless conservationist and visionary, was gunned down near his home in Petén, Guatemala, last week. Here the Rainforest Alliance’s José Román Carrera pays tribute to his friend and colleague.
Richard Donovan, our VP of Forestry, talks about his recent trip to Indonesia and the work we’re doing to deepen our impacts on the ground.
