TBI seeks to promote sustainable use of forests and trees in climate-smart landscapes in the tropics in support of inclusive sustainable development. This requires significant progress on three, interrelated domains where we focus our efforts:

Themes-2018-02.pngSustainable land use

Small- and large-scale landscape actors adopt production and management practices that maintain environmental integrity and contribute to sustainable development and climate goals.

Themes-2018_Inclusive governance.pngInclusive governance

Actors from all sectors engage in decision-making processes concerning tropical forested landscapes and the value chains originating in those landscapes.

Themes-2018-03.pngResponsible business and finance

Business models and investment schemes developed by private companies and financial institutions encourage the integration of smallholders in value chains, adherence to social and environmental standards, and the effective implementation of zero-deforestation commitments.
