While CEPF's grantees are making strides on the local and regional levels to conserve biodiversity and ecosystems in the biodiversity hotspots, their efforts also resonate at the global level. Our grantees' actions yield valuable contributions to the achievement of international goals related to the environment, poverty and sustainable development.

CEPF's grantees are partners to governments and multilateral entities in meeting commitments to international agreements, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the U.N. Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).
