Forest Partners

Our latest documentary crosses three continents to highlight the economic potential of forests, based on sustainable and inclusive production systems.


Forest Partners highlights an often unseen side of forests – the economic ecosystems thriving between public and private organisations and local communities.

Travelling the tropics, the film showcases successful innovations in sustainable production systems worldwide, proving it is possible to obtain social, environmental, and economic benefits by preserving or restoring forest landscapes.

The initiatives featured over 45-minutes are based in South America, Africa, and Asia, in regions where there are still preserved forest landscapes, but where the impacts of deforestation and forest degradation are already widely felt. These solutions combine technology and traditional knowledge to protect tropical forests, with shared benefits – and they need to be scaled.
