Biodiversity conservation cannot be achieved by one organization, or even one group of organizations, in isolation—the challenges are too great, the solutions multi-pronged. 

The CEPF model is based on partnerships—connecting our donor organizations, regional implementation teams, grantees, local communities, businesses, governments and other stakeholders—in order to deliver strategies that make a significant, sustainable impact in the biodiversity hotspots where we work. 

Additional collaborations increase our reach and further our mission. We’re proud to be a part of the following:

Key Biodiversity Areas Partnership

Recognizing that financial resources for conservation are limited but that threats to many ecosystems are immediate, the Key Biodiversity Areas (KBA) Partnership was formed in 2016 and brings together 11 conservation groups to map, monitor and preserve KBAs, places with astounding amounts of species diversity. The ultimate aim is to significantly increase efforts by governments, civil society and private companies to safeguard these important places. 

In addition to CEPF, founding members include:

International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative

The International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) is made up of 240 member organizations working to promote collaboration in conservation and restore human-influenced natural environments by increasing global recognition of their value. IPSI achieves this through research, networking, capacity building, policymaking and outreach.
