CIFOR’s vision is of a world in which forests remain high on the world’s political agenda, and people recognise the real value of forests for maintaining livelihoods and ecosystems. CIFOR envisions that decision-making affecting forests is based on solid science and principles of good governance, and that it reflects the perspectives of developing countries and forest-dependent people.
Mission: As a member of the CGIAR Consortium, CIFOR shares the mission of reducing poverty and hunger, improving human health and nutrition, and enhancing ecosystem resilience through high-quality international agricultural research, partnership and leadership.
