The 1992 Rio Earth Summit, Section 3c stated that host countries should undertake base line biodiversity inventories to ascertain what areas need protection. If a signatory is unable to do this survey  they can request assistance from international aid agencies. Greenforce is one of these agencies.

Greenforce offers long term commitment to at risk regions to establish and implement sustainable communities. In addition our training programs offer Volunteer Research Assistants the opportunity to work alongside scientists to make a real difference and also develop their careers in conservation.

"I believe it is key that my team and I visit each program  and then place our own staff and partners in contact with the local communities. So we can work with and alongside the community to empower them to create their own future, how they want it, in the modern world.

Our programs provide you with the opportunity to help at risk communities and for you to truly become a global citizen."

Marcus R. Watts - Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society,  Founder of The Greenforce Foundation.

The Greenforce Foundation is a UK registered charity promoting conservation, mico-development programs that empower at risk communities around the world.
