Irish Woodworkers for Africa (T/A Just Forests) was founded in 1989 in response to the trade in tropical timber and the resulting decline of global forests thus making us one of Ireland's longest established non-governmental development education organisations working solely on global poverty-related tropical forestry/timber issues from a local development perspective.
Just Forests uses society's dependence on wood and the on-going decline in global forests as a tool to establish links between green-house gases, the loss of terrestrial biodiversity, "development", conflict and poverty.
Since our inception, Just Forests, have always insisted that good forest stewardship is inseparable from sustainable development, and if we fail to take it into account we risk undoing all the positive work being carried out by national and international development agencies and governments to reduce poverty and combat climate change.
