The Center for International Forestry Research and the environmental reporting platform Mongabay have launched a partnership to spread more news about the world’s forest ecosystems.

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), a scientific organisation that researches ways to better manage and preserve the planet’s tropical forests, and  Mongabay, a leading environmental reporting platform dedicated to raising awareness globally about social and environmental issues related to tropical forests, have launched a partnership to increase the dissemination of news about the status of the world’s forest ecosystems.

Both organisations are committed to communicating scientific research and improving the capacity of journalists and investigators to report on forest conservation. The new agreement, covering a period of two years, is aimed at building awareness of the crucial relationship between forests and people across the globe. The two organisations will complement each other’s activities by producing original reports and news about forests and conservation, expanded participation in CIFOR events and webinars and professional training opportunities for Mongabay’s network of journalists.

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) advances human well-being, equity and environmental integrity by conducting innovative research, developing partners’ capacity, and actively engaging in dialogue with all stakeholders to inform policies and practices that affect forests and people. CIFOR is a CGIAR Research Center that leads the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).
