ROLE: HUMAN RIGHTS PROJECT SUPPORT CONSULTANT

Company Profile

By utilizing social and market forces to protect the environment and enhance farmers’ and forest communities’ lives, the Rainforest Alliance is making the world more sustainable. We work with various allies to improve global supply networks and many of our most significant natural areas.

Our alliance includes farmers, foresters, industries, governments, civic society, and millions of people in 70 countries. We fight climate change, safeguard forests and biodiversity, and enhance rural livelihoods.

As an international NGO with over 30 years of sustainable transformation expertise, we know that ecosystem health affects rural communities’ social and economic well-being. This information has guided our rigorous land-use and commodity-production sustainability strategies.

We fight climate change, protect forests and biodiversity, promote human rights, and enhance livelihoods at the Rainforest Alliance. The scale of our social and environmental issues necessitates wide collaboration. We collaborate with farmers, forest communities, companies, and consumers to change global production, sourcing, and consumption.

Why

We must manage land and produce food and other items more sustainably to protect nature and enhance lives. To do this, we must radically transform how businesses operate and source and our consumer choices.

How

Our developing worldwide alliance seeks to improve our interaction with natural resources and each other to benefit people and ecosystems.

Overview

This Rights-Based and Landscape project, Tackling Forced and Child Labour in Cocoa and Gold Landscapes (‘Ye Ne Mmofra No Nti’), addresses forced, child, and worst forms of child labor in both sectors to prevent migration. The Rainforest Alliance and its partners are implementing a three-year NORAD-funded project.

The project aims to 1) strengthen government institutions to identify, monitor, prevent, and address forced and child labor and human trafficking; 2) improve the capacity of cocoa and gold mining organizations and supply chain actors to implement Human Right Due Diligence and best practices; and 3) help community-based organizations and monitors advocate for and demand accountability from the government. While building socio-economic resilience, it strives to protect vulnerable people from forced and child labor.
