Coalition for Rainforest Nations Secretariat
The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN or the ‘Coalition) assists tropical governments, communities and peoples responsibly manage their rainforests. Healthy rainforests protect against a changing climate, generate needed biodiversity and provide safe habitats. Launched by Coalition members in 2005, the United Nation’s REDD+ Mechanism, designed to incentivize conservation and contribute to the battle against climate change, now includes around 90% of the world’s remaining rainforests. A first in human history! But, it’s only the beginning. To succeed, rainforests must be valued more alive than dead!

With the help of our many partners, from individuals and governments to local nonprofits and corporations.

Environmental Defense Fund
Environmental Defense Fund's mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends. Guided by science and economics, we find practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems. What distinguishes Environmental Defense Fund is the combination of what we protect and how we protect it. We work to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet. This has drawn us to areas that span the biosphere: climate, oceans, ecosystems and health. Since these topics are intertwined, our solutions take a multidisciplinary approach. We work in concert with other organizations — as well as with business, government and communities — and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others.
Seacology searches for win-win situations where both the local island environment is protected and islanders receive some lasting benefit for doing so. We work directly with island villagers to protect critically-threatened biodiversity globally. We implement solutions by asking islanders to identify a communal need Seacology could support, such as an elementary school or fresh water delivery system. In exchange, the village agrees to establish and manage a marine or terrestrial reserve. Our innovative win-win model is inexpensive, maintains indigenous land ownership and improves the entire community.
