Social Reforestation

Social reforestation is an important part of environmental sustainability and can help to protect and restore forests and ecosystems. It can also provide economic and social benefits to local communities. By involving local people in decision-making and implementation, social reforestation can be successful and beneficial for all.

By engaging local communities in the process of afforestation and reforestation, we are able to create more sustainable forests. This includes planning, planting, and preserving tree cover, as well as using proactive fire prediction to address forest fires. Not only does this help protect the forests, but it also provides an economic benefit to the local communities, as they are able to develop their livelihoods around the forests and benefit from the resources they provide.

Forests are more than just trees, they support both biodiversity and human livelihoods. They serve as homes for over half of the world's land-based species, and provide a source of income for 60 million indigenous communities.


Our Social Forestry projects undertakings work on forests that are closely linked to tribal and marginalized communities. Beyond just forestry, we work with the local communities to provide them livelihood, engage them in the plantation, integrate agroforestry towards the community benefit.

Over 1.5 billion people rely on forests for livelihoods
Forests provide us with shelter, livelihoods, water, food and fuel security. All these activities directly or indirectly involve forests. Some are easy to figure out - fruits, paper and wood from trees, and so on. Others are less obvious, such as by-products that go into everyday items like medicines, cosmetics and detergents.
