In this episode Daimen Hardie, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Community Forest International talks about the mission to provide the right tools for people to become a restorative force. Through the lens of forestry and climate change we get a glimpse into their life changing outcomes globally, specifically in Tanzania and Canada.
78% of the people we support directly in Zanzibar working with them to adapt to climate change, also increase their income by making a transition to more climate smart livelihoods by working in a more regenerative way with their land and with their forests, building more resilience in their communities, also improving their income at the same time.
56% of the women that we work with completely control their own income that they make through activities we support and another 36 or 37% have primary control. And in the context of Tanzania, which is one of the most gender unequal countries in the world, this is really important.Daimen Hardie, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Community Forest International
