TEMA, The Turkish Foundation for Combating Soil Erosion, for Reforestation and the Protection of Natural Habitats

TEMA Foundation believes that a sustainable life, from public health to building strong economies, can only be realized through nature-friendly policies. In this context, it develops scientific policies against fundamental issues determined by the activities of daily life such as the management of natural assets, land use, energy and raw material needs, and climate change. It carries out advocacy work at local and national level in order to shape public policies produced in the above-mentioned focus areas with an approach that centers on sustainable living. Within the scope of advocacy work, it follows changes in legislation; produces and shares information, policy notes and scientific reports with the public; works with local and national stakeholders; and conducts legal, local organizing and awareness-raising activities.
