Forest Peoples Programme supports the rights of peoples who live in forests and depend on them for their livelihoods. We work to create political space for forest peoples to secure rights, control their lands and decide their own futures.


  • Get the rights and interests of forest peoples recognised in laws, policies and programmes
  • Support forest peoples to build their own capacities to claim and exercise their human rights
  • Counter top-down policies and projects that threaten the rights of forest peoples
  • Promote community-based sustainable forest management
  • Ensure equity, counter discrimination and promote gender justice
  • Inform NGO actions on forests in line with forest peoples’ visions
  • Link up indigenous and forest peoples’ movements at the regional and international levels

The participants, facilitated by Gordon Thomas from PACOS and FPP, finalized and sent a powerful message not only to the whole of the Asia Parks Congress but also specifically addressed the World Parks Congress that will take place over the next 5 years.

Depuis les années 1980, les efforts de conservation dans les pays en développement ont tenté de concilier les objectifs de la biologie de conservation et le développement social. Les approches sont multiples. Cependant la conservation intégrée construite autour des aires protégées reste le modèle le plus soutenu par les politiques et les stratégies des pays (Busquet, 2006 ; Clarke, 2019).
