Food Nature


Food Nature Climate Dialogue (FNCD) strengthens the capacity and impact of civil society organizations working on forest protection, sustainable land use, and Indigenous rights.

We support a diverse network of partners with strategic communications. Our core offering includes international media outreach, boosting visibility for spokespeople around key topics, insights to better inform campaign planning, influencer strategies, and social media advertising.

We help amplify the voices of local communities, scientists, influencers and movements to promote land rights and demonstrate the key role of forests in mitigating the climate crisis.

Who We Are

Food Nature Climate Dialogue is part of the Climate and Land Use Alliance’s (CLUA) Strategic Communications Initiative. In close collaboration with civil society partners and movements, our team supports strategic communications efforts by publicizing forest and land use research and evidence, amplifying forest community and civil society voices, and helping to develop overarching narratives.
