Cool Earth’s partnerships with indigenous villages have proved that community led conservation works in Peru, The Congo, and Papua New Guinea. A new initiative launched today will replicate that model in tropical rainforest across the Commonwealth.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy is a coherent and vibrant network of forest conservation initiatives throughout the 53 nations of the Commonwealth. It demonstrates the capacity of the Commonwealth to act together and to benefit from shared knowledge and experience.
And Cool Earth is immensely proud to be leading the project.
Commonwealth citizens are leading the world in efforts to protect the forest – forest that their communities and the planet as a whole depend on.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy will show that, irrespective of geography, economy, culture or tenure, solutions exist to the threats facing these most critical of ecosystems.
