Program areas at CI
See schedule ofield programs: ci's field programs work directly with governments, businesses and communities to sustain nature so it can continue to sustain us all. From partnering with local fisheries to restore vibrant fisheries in indonesia, to helping farmers in sub-saharan africa improve their livelihoods while combating climate change, we have a proven track record of innovation, collaboration and success. Ci is working actively in 520,000 square kilometers (200,000 square miles) across 127 terrestrial protected areas globally. In addition, ci has an active role in the Conservation of 4.1 million square kilometers (1.6 million square miles) throughout 163 marine protected areas.
See schedule othe betty and gordon moore center for science:conservation requires science to determine where and how to protect nature. Through its betty and gordon moore center for science, ci produces and applies the science-based evidence and solutions most needed to change the global paradigm to nature-based development. Science has always guided our work, and we rely on it as the Foundation of Conservation. We are one of the few Conservation organizations that has a global science team dedicated solely to advancing Conservation science. In 2020, ci scientists and collaborators published 40 peer-reviewed articles, including in top ranked scientific journals.
See schedule ograntmaking division:ci's grantmaking division is made up of four programs: critical ecosystem partnership fund (cepf), Conservation finance division (cfd), global environment facility (gef) agency and green climate fund (gcf) agency.cepf is a global program that provides grants to nongovernmental organizations and other private sector partners to protect critical ecosystems. Cepf's grants are guided by regional investment strategies developed with stakeholders; target biodiversity hotspots in developing and transitional countries; go directly to civil society groups to build this vital constituency for Conservation alongside governmental partners; create strategic working alliances among diverse groups, combining unique capacities and eliminating duplication of efforts; and achieve results through an ever-expanding network of partners working toward shared goals.cfd offers financial mechanisms to support field-level Conservation and ensure economic benefits to local communities. Cfd creates alliances with large-scale donors and corporations to make entrepreneurship a tool in building the Conservation strategies of tomorrow. Cfd pioneers ways for indigenous groups and local communities in developing countries to directly benefit from becoming responsible stewards of nature. Building on a long history of innovation in Conservation finance, cfd is unlocking private capital toward saving the most important nature for people. The ci-gef agency serves as a transparent and responsive intermediary between the gef and ci's partners. The agency designs and implements a portfolio of projects to achieve global environmental benefits and support the needs of partner countries. It develops inclusive and country-driven projects, to make efficient and effective use of gef resources, and to operate in a flexible manner to ensure responsiveness to partners and to maintain the ability to rapidly leverage strategic opportunities that align with the agency's strategic results framework. Ci's green climate fund (gcf) agency works directly with project proponents, governments and partners to develop high quality funding proposals and oversee implementation of gcf-funded projects. These projects promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development in line with national priorities. Ci-gcf ensures that these projects achieve positive climate outcomes while adhering to gcf policies and procedures.this year the grantmaking division made 84 new grant commitments to partner organizations.
