Given its global reach and impact, Conservation International (CI) opened a policy office in 2010 in the heart of the European Union (EU) – Brussels, Belgium – building on CI’s relationships with several European governments, agencies and civil society organization, and recognizing the growing importance of the EU as a global agent of change.

With its 27 member states and 500 million citizens, the EU is the world’s largest economy with a vast stake in the world’s resources (including fisheries, timber and land); the top provider of official development assistance in the world (it disbursed US$ 82 billion in 2010); and a key player in international discussions on development, climate change and ecosystem services.

Needless to say, engaging with the EU is fundamental to achieve CI’s vision of human well-being through healthy, sustainable ecosystems. CI Europe aims to be a trusted advisor on European policies that have a global impact on the maintenance of healthy ecosystems, biodiversity conservation and human welfare – and works closely with both CI headquarters in the United States and the EU environment community, fostering transatlantic dialogue on critical conservation issues.

CI Europe is part of CI’s Policy Center for Environment and Peace, created to take on the enormous challenge of moving national governments to adopt policies for protecting the world’s biodiversity and ecosystem services. In 2006, a major partnership was signed with the government of France, and since then CI has expanded its network in Europe, building important relationships with other governments (especially Germany and Norway), NGOs and foundations with a vision of a sustainable development path that supports human well-being.

Some European corporations are also long-time partners of CI’s Conservation Steward Program, which bridges conservation and development through innovative conservation agreements with communities who own or rely on natural resources, an approach that helps conserve biodiversity while improving the quality of life for local communities.
