Governments need to develop the local, national and international policies and other frameworks necessary for confronting climate change.

Our role​

CI helps to provide governments at all levels with the information they need to make the most responsible climate policy decisions, and to ensure that ecosystems and their services are valued in the climate change policy dialogue.

CI advises governments as they strive to develop low-carbon economies with effective, efficient and equitable REDD+ and adaptation plans. This includes engaging and strengthening indigenous and local community institutions, establishing sound and sustainable benefit-sharing and forest conservation actions, transferring technical skills and knowledge, and enhancing national accounting frameworks and governance structures.
