LAND USE

A growing population and middle class mean 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.

 

Our Focus

Our approach of Production & Protection aims to help nations achieve low-carbon economic growth. We identify and assess opportunities to improve land use efficiency and increase productivity of land while simultaneously protecting forests’ vital carbon stocks. CPI is working with the Ministry of Environment in Brazil, the Ministry of Finance in Indonesia, and other decision makers to support a Production & Protection strategy.
