ABOUT US

RSeT is a Portuguese NGO created in 2011 that focuses on developing solutions for adaptation to, and mitigation of climate change in tropical regions. Special attention is given to those contributions that fill the gap between policy requirements and capacity through the provision of knowledge, information, adequate tools and techniques.

Our main objective is to improve renewable natural resource management as a means of inducing sustainable food security and biodiversity conservation. The main strategy is to support activities in the Land Use Land Use-Change and Forestry (LULUCF) sector that facilitate access to international funds for combating climate change. For that, we prioritize cross-sector approaches that involve stakeholders, from central government to local communities, and foster projects involving various sectors of the economy.
