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.
