Project Tarsier

Reforestation for People, Biodiversity and Climate

Large-scale reforestation

Enhancing independence for local communities

We are restoring deforested and degraded landscapes in the Philippines to learn more about implementing reforestation projects in tropical countries.

Carbon credits fund the reforestation activities and provide sustainable livelihoods for local communities, enhancing social, economic, and environmental outcomes.

The project provides a living laboratory: a unique opportunity for research on key knowledge gaps on how to implement reforestation at scale with communities for socioeconomic and environmental benefits.
