Global Canopy Programme

Actor Type 

The Global Canopy Programme (GCP) is a tropical forest think tank working to demonstrate the scientific, political and business case for safeguarding forests as natural capital that underpins water, food, energy, health and climate security for all. GCP works through its international networks – of forest communities, science experts, policymakers, and finance and corporate leaders – to gather evidence, spark insight, and catalyse action to halt forest loss and improve human livelihoods dependent on forests.

GCP works on the ground in Guyana and Brazil, and globally through its Forest COMPASS project, to scale the adoption and impact of community-based forest monitoring worldwide, and to help make REDD+ more efficient, effective and equitable.
