A voluntary group consisting mainly of developing nations with rainforests, that addresses issues around environmental sustainability specific to tropical rainforests. It aims at enhancing stewardship of the world's remaining tropical rainforests, biodiversity conservation and climate stability by reversing the continuing destruction of tropical rainforests.
