Forest Trends works to conserve forests and other ecosystems through the creation and wide adoption of a broad range of environmental finance, markets and other payment and incentive mechanisms. Forest Trends does so by:
- Providing transparent information on ecosystem values, finance, and markets through knowledge acquisition, analysis, and dissemination;
- convening diverse coalitions, partners and communities of practice to promote environmental values and advance development of new markets and payment mechanisms; and
- demonstrating successful tools, standards, and models of innovative finance for conservation.
