Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Conservation International

Since 1987 Conservation International has been fighting to protect nature for people. 

Building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership, and field demonstration, CI empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity.

The vision of CI is a healthy and prosperous world in which societies are forever committed to caring for and valuing nature, for the long term benefit of people and all life on Earth. CI is focusing on a wide range of topics related to ecosystems, biodiversity and human well-being, all around the world.

Conservation International works to spotlight and secure the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity. They have helped to protect more than 6 million square kilometers (2.3 million square miles) of land and sea across more than 70 countries. Currently, with offices in 29 countries and 2,000 partners worldwide, their reach is truly global.

Conservation International sought to engage, support and partner with GLISPA due to shared objectives. The primary goal of Conservation International is to advance models of resilient islands and tangible ways to further ocean-based solutions to equitable, sustainable development for both people and places.
