CIFOR-ICRAF works closely with national and sub-national partners in government, society and business in countries throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America to help deliver the kind of lasting change they want.
With offices in 25 countries, including 14 Host Country Agreements, CIFOR-ICRAF activities span over 60 countries across the world. Recognizing the importance of context and diversity, we aim to harness the biological, social, cultural and economic diversity of the landscapes in which we work to foster innovation and adaptation – and ultimately resilience.
Our staff understand the locations where they work, with long-established presence on the ground supported by in-country offices where our presence is needed most. Whether in forests, agroforests, mangroves or farms, our work on the ground is made possible by diverse networks of valued partners – from community producer groups working on sustainable wild meat in the heart of the Congo forest to some of the world’s largest companies producing chocolate, coffee or cosmetics.
CIFOR-ICRAF is embedded with national governments in countries from Peru to Côte d’Ivoire to Viet Nam. At the subnational level, we work with local governments such as in Turkana County in Kenya and with state or provincial governments such as in Odisha, India and South Sumatra, Indonesia.
Together, we are conceiving, developing and delivering the evidence and examples that can scale transformative change at all levels.
