Norway's International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI)

Tropical forests are among our most ancient ecosystems. Indispensable to the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people. The habitat of half to one third of the world’s terrestrial plants, animals and insects. Crucial for global, regional and local water supply. An enormous carbon sink, which can provide one third of the climate change solution over the next 15 years. Norway has pledged up to 3 billion NOK a year to help save these forests while improving the livelihoods of those who life off, in, and near the forests.
