- protecting remaining intact forests through strengthening local governance and working to reduce pressure in the buffer zones;
- restoring degraded forest through planting and encouraging natural regeneration of native species;
- planting agroforestry systems that increase tree cover in farming landscapes and provide food and timber for local families.

WeForest’s work is more than planting trees.
It’s about getting results for the people who live in the landscapes we’re restoring. This is crucial if we want to be sure that forests will be protected for the long term.
To ensure the long-term survival of the trees and build a solution to deforestation, we engage and train local farmers who earn a stable income and become stewards of their new forest.
Women are the majority of the world’s poor, and more vulnerable to the effects of climate change. They play a central role in forest and landscape restoration, and shape our strategies.
