Pursuing Global Solutions

In response to current Global Challenges, we will pursue Global Solutions at the intersection of nature’s and people’s needs. The Solutions are areas where we will develop specific strategies and link them to our place-based work at the system scale. These are the leverage points that take our work to a greater relevance beyond the acres we can conserve directly.

Protecting and restoring natural systems while enhancing the prosperity of people will continue to be at the core of our work. Today, however, these efforts have evolved in scale to focus on whole landscapes, watersheds and seascapes. This requires us to focus on truly transformative policy, transactions and financing solutions to meet global challenges.

Moving the world to use nature sustainably will help solve some of the biggest challenges facing humanity and address head-on the major drivers of change adversely affecting nature. The pace of agricultural expansion, fisheries utilization, energy exploration and infrastructure development—on land and water—is dramatic. Engaging policymakers and business leaders in each of these sectors to apply our science-based planning methods to guide these uses to be sustainable is crucial. Ensuring that society values the benefits and services from nature could potentially create new investments for conservation by the private and public sectors.

Demonstrating the value of nature for people will help expand support for conservation. The Conservancy’s thought leadership in science, economics and finance and engagement with policy makers and business leaders are showing how conservation solutions can help address the world’s great challenges and create demand for public and private investment in nature. Making the real connections between human well-being and healthy natural systems, coupled with concerted outreach to new audiences, has the potential to move public perception of nature conservation from the sidelines to the mainstream. A large, diverse and active constituency is vital to making conservation a top priority around the globe.
