As the global population grows, it’s more important than ever to use land and natural resources efficiently. To meet the world’s needs, we must improve agricultural productivity while avoiding expansion into carbon-rich areas like forests.
CPI research identifies and assesses opportunities to improve land-use efficiency and increase the productivity of land while simultaneously protecting forests’ vital carbon stocks. Current partnerships include the Ministry of Agriculture in Brazil, the Ministry of Finance in Indonesia, and other decision-makers to support a Production & Protection strategy.
