This was a government forestry concession awarded in 1992 to a Federation of local communities representing 2 million people known as the “Community Users Forest Group” (CUFG) (Dolakha District). The CUFG maintains the right to develop sustainable projects.  in 2018 we will annouce which local and international project financing partners are aboard.

Myanmar

 

Replanting Mangroves

The replanting of mangroves started as a research project in Myanmar in cooperation with the Minsitry of Environment Conservation and Forestry, and the Pathein and Myek University. It was a national plan for restoration of mangrove forests in all coastal areas of the country. The project was initially funded by the Letten Foundation in Norway and tree planting was started by WorldView Foundation in Myanmar.

Myanmar


Elephant Park

Developing plans for a 70,000 – 200,000 ha eco elephant park in Myanmar. Now that logging is illegal, 3,500 elephants in the country are out of work. The government is poised to award a land concession in a designated area concession. RainTrust is co assembling an international team with US based NGO, The Elephant Project to secure the land concession and develop the project.

Brazil

We are developing plans for a 5,000 ha university campus near Manaus, Brazil. The project will offer accreditation focused on “Sustainability and the Green Economy”. It will be innovatively designed from sustainable bamboo tree houses and will be partly floating on the Rio Negro River. The international Board of Directors will develop the curriculum and the operating university will be selected from a short list of major international universitie

Manaus is nearly 1,000 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean, is surrounded by the Amazon rainforest and located at the confluence of the Amazon and Rio Negro rivers. 

In the 19th century fortunes were made in this part of Brazil from rubber trees that grew in the Amazon. Manaus was ground-zero for those rubber barons, and the city became known as the “Paris of the Tropics.” Remnants of that era remain today, with the city’s opulent Opera House its most famous symbol.
