Making It Possible
A global network of like-minded organizations and companies will have greater impact in addressing the social justice issues wrought by the climate crisis.
Nature For Justice's fundamental tenets:
Identify and support various types of partner relationships
Increase and accelerate our impact
Build on and leverage local expertise to create broad, long-range value
We work with three types of partners:
We believe that professionally managed national, or sub-national, conservation and rural development organizations — such as Los Aliados in Ecuador and NCRC in Ghana — will always have a better understanding of the local context and community dynamics than external organizations. We’re also confident that, with the right support, such organizations will be more cost-effective than international organizations in supporting small-scale producers and relevant organizations. We are convinced that the durability of results is best achieved by working with these partners. Our role is to build the capacity of our field partners by bringing expertise from other locations, new technologies and processes for smart experimentation, and resources, as needed. We will also ensure the sharing of experience and lessons learned among the network of field partners.
Partner companies are committed to our mission, seek our assistance to connect with communities, and are willing to pay for the value that they derive from these relationships – for instance, the purchase of ecosystem services and carbon credits.
Fundación Aliados enables farmers and communities to build resilient businesses that conserve biodiversity in the Andes and Amazon tropical ecosystems.
Cultivo's mission is to unlock investment to restore nature at scale. We do this by showing how investing in natural capital can generate healthy financial returns that are good for nature and society.
