Tropical forest community mapping initiative to examine feasibility of global online platform – Join the Discussion!
RFUK is delighted to launch an open consultation on the feasibility of establishing a global online interactive mapping database of forest peoples’ lands in tropical forests. Based on our experience in developing the MappingForRights platform in the Congo Basin, and with support from the Ford Foundation and in coordination our with our sister organisations, Rainforest Foundation US (RFUS) and Norway (RFN), the tropical forest community mapping initiative (TFCMI) will assess potential demand for and specific purposes for a similar facility elsewhere.
We are reaching out to all stakeholders involved or interested in tropical forests, land rights or technical mapping issues. Click here to find out more about this initiative or contact us directly at MappingForRights@rainforestuk.org to join the discussion.
