Since 2007, Responsible Asia Forestry and Trade (RAFT), a partnership of seven leading organizations, is building the capacity of countries, businesses and communities in Asia Pacific to practice legal and sustainable forest management and trade. Our focus is on timber legality verification and the application of sustainable forest management practices, including those to reduce carbon emissions.

RAFT Goal is to reduce by 2020 the rate of tropical deforestation and forest degradation in the Asia Pacific region by 50%.
