The website features three separate but overlapping groups of NGO’s that defend forests: NGOs from all over the world that work on forests but who have not necessarily endorsed any policy position found on the website; the more than 100 NGOs that have endorsed the petition calling for forest biomass to be taken out of the RED II; and a core group of NGOs that have endorsed the “forest principles,” a prescription for an EU forest policy that would protect biodiversity and climate. Whitepapers, blog posts, and other materials published under the Forest Defenders Alliance logo are required to be consistent with the forest principles, but have not been individually reviewed by the groups listed on this website, and use of the logo does not imply endorsement by any group of anything more than the forest principles.  Groups wishing to publish materials consistent with the principles either on the website or under the logo are invited to contact us.
