We support Congressional leadership in Conservation.
ICCF works to educate U.S. policymakers on international conservation, using good science and models of public-private partnerships that invest in protecting biodiversity and natural resources.
Since 2006, the ICCF has been recognized as the leading organizer of relationships between U.S. policymakers, conservationists, and business leaders. We work hard to maintain a working structure that helps policymakers react to international ecosystem challenges and make informed decisions in allocating resources.
For bipartisanship to be attained, for the best decisions to be made, our Senators and Representatives need to be presented with a compelling demonstration of coordinated, impartial information. Our messages are presented with clarity, cohesion, and objectivity.
Integrating environmental stewardship and good natural resource management into private-sector investment.
For many in the developing world, their foremost concern is day-to-day survival. When people are desperate, they resort to desperate measures, often destroying the very natural resources on which they depend. Market-based conservation solutions are essential to ensure that natural resources are used in a manner that allows people to benefit from these resources while also providing them with incentive to ensure their long-term viability.
