Conservation International works in a variety of landscapes and programs with one goal: to protect nature for human well-being. In Asia-Pacific, we work in the most significant places for people and nature, including the largest and most biodiverse tropical forests, rivers, and oceans where we can best apply and accelerate our work.
Through cutting-edge research and tools, we identify, value, and protect this natural capital - the species and ecosystems that provide the services people need most. We have influenced policy, driven sustainable solutions, helped define and manage some of the largest protected areas, and empowered communities to conserve their indigenous lands.
We do this through innovative science and financing, and essential partnerships with government, private sector, academics, NGOs, and communities. We are committed to defining scalable, enduring solutions to global problems.
1. We work to protect natural forests, mangroves, and peatlands as these ecosystems can help us mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon.
2. We work to protect the oceans that provide our breathable oxygen and provides food for millions of people in Asia.
3. We work with local communities, government, and businesses to establish sustainable models based on scientific evidence that ensures nature is protected for future generations.
Our priorities in Asia-Pacific are Indonesia, Timor-Leste, the Philippines, Cambodia, and the Pacific Islands
