    EditItem Title:The challenge
    EditItem Link:[Optional]
    EditItem Text:The world has lost nearly half its forests for agriculture, development or resource extraction. Yet the value of the benefits that standing forests provide is immense: Tropical forests alone account for at least 30 percent of the global mitigation action needed to halt climate change. Yet this value remains largely invisible.

    How we work

    Conservation International uses a science-based approach to prioritize the most important forests and the benefits they provide; to quantify the value of those benefits for decision-makers; to protect them sustainably for the long term; and to monitor their ongoing protection and health.​

    Edit Title:Prioritize
    Edit Text:

    Conservation International teams with local partners, communities and experts to identify and map the world’s “natural capital” — the ecosystems that provide the most benefits to humanity. The world’s forests are key stores of this natural capital, as they regulate climate, harbor biodiversity and regulate water flows.​

    Edit Text:

    Knowing the economic value of the benefits that forests provide can make forests’ contribution to livelihoods and economies visible, enabling smarter decisions. Conservation International has developed innovative ways to quantify the value of forests so that countries and companies can measure their impact — and reliance — on forests.
