Tropenbos International envisions a future in which forests and trees are used sustainably for the benefit of local people and the global community. By using evidence to make conscious choices and finding the right balance between the needs of all the stakeholders involved, we contribute to sustainable solutions for forested landscapes.

Tropenbos International (TBI) brings the knowledge together to address complex questions regarding sustainable management of forests and trees, organizes interactions with all the stakeholders and actively helps to create broad support.

We started in 1986 as a Dutch non -governmental non-profit organization, in 2017 we became a network of independent member organisations. We work in more than ten countries in the south, through our network of six local members and collaborations with partners elsewhere.

Widespread palm oil production causes much controversy due to its negative impacts in the tropics. But whatever is said about it, it is big business and getting bigger by the day due to increasing global demands. Alongside this, the size and depth of the social and environmental debates surrounding palm oil production are also growing. As a major globally-consumed commodity, its production in the humid and sub-humid tropics raises concerns due to its impacts on the environment, biodiversity, local communities, smallholder livelihoods, land rights and climate change.

Landscape governance relates to how rules and decision-making address overlapping claims and conflicting interests in the landscape. It also relates to how rules and decision-making encourage synergies among stakeholders and stimulate the sustainable management of the landscape. In order to achieve sustainable landscape development, it is crucial to understand how governance processes are organized, and how this influences the decisions and behaviour of actors in the landscape.

There is a growing consensus that producer organizations are critically important for the sustainable use of natural resources. Representing the collective voices of farmers and forest-dependent people, indigenous groups and rural communities, producer organizations provide essential services to their members and are the building blocks of local democracy. Formal or informal, effective producer organizations identify and agree upon the means to manage their natural resources.

Project

In the Land Governance Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue (LG MSD), the Netherlands government, Dutch companies, Dutch financial institutions, Dutch civil society organizations and Dutch knowledge institutes work together to achieve better land governance in line with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the context of national food security (VGGTs). Participants in the LG MSD contribute to the development of learning trajectories/ cases as well as dialogue sessions with decision makers.
