One football pitch every second

Empowering women and making sure their voices are heard in local forest management schemes can change lives and save ancient rainforest. This is just one of the campaigns the forest team at ClientEarth are leading as they work on behalf of all to save and protect forests - currently being destroyed at a rate of one football pitch per second - and the rights of indigenous peoples. By working with local communities Babette Brophy and Brian Rohan from CE ensure that the forest provides both an income and home to the local residents and holds back the tide of mass commercialisation.
