    Leaders of governments, businesses, communities and families realize our food, climate, fresh water and livelihoods depend on healthy ecosystems, but they need science-based tools to help inform policies and actions.

    Through innovative partnerships, advanced analysis and rigorous work on the ground (and in the water) around the world, the Moore Center develops solutions that support decision-makers in making effective choices about nature and human well-being.

    Edit Item Title:Measure
    Edit Item Link:[Optional]
    Edit Item Text:Leaders can’t manage what they can’t measure. Moore Center scientists are advancing metrics and indices to enable informed decisions and to measure their impacts. Our measurements focus on the health of ecosystems, the values they provide to societies and the way people make decisions.

    Edit Item Title:Value
    Edit Item Link:[Optional]
    Edit Item Text:The benefits we receive from nature are rarely valued, so too often they go unnoticed in policy and economic decisions. CI’s solutions use science and economics to inform decision-makers where the most important ecosystems are located, what benefits they provide and to whom, so economic development decisions help steward the ecosystems we depend on rather than jeopardize them.

    Edit Item Title:Design
    Edit Item Link:[Optional]
    Edit Item Text:Too often, decisions are made in isolation, focusing on only one sector or one activity. This uncoordinated approach is not sustainable: agriculture can degrade the environment, while inadequate conservation policy can create conflicts between people and wildlife. We design tools to integrate across different sectors and needs to evaluate trade-offs and synergies among decisions about production and the risks to ecosystems and people.
