Proforest Initiative Africa

PIA supports this mission by making our global expertise accessible to sustainability initiatives, governmental and non-governmental organisations, the private sector and civil society organisations in Africa through the development and implementation of programmes.
PIA is currently implementing 4 programmes in West and Central Africa. These include Africa Palm Oil Initiative (APOI), Production Landscape Programme (PLP), Adum Small Holder Programme (ASH) and BVRio-Responsible Timber Exchange (BVRio-RTE).
