CIFOR–ICRAF achieves science-driven impact. We conduct innovative research, strengthen
partners’ capacity and actively engage in dialogue with all stakeholders, bringing the latest insights on
forests, trees, landscapes and people to global decision making.
CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests,
landscapes, people and the planet.
We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and
restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short,
improving people’s lives.
How will fire affect the Amazon forests of the future?
