We know that for projects to be sustainable in the long-term, they require time and effort to establish them. So Cool Earth partners with communities for at least 7 years, this ensures that the community earns more from keeping the forest standing once Cool Earth has exited.
We want our smart approach to be copied around the world. We’re testing our model of community-led conservation, and are in the process of putting everything Cool Earth has learnt into an open source ToolBox. Communities and other organisations will be able to use all that we’ve learnt and replicate our model to save more forest.
