Organization Description and Mission:
CBI applies the best science and technology available to accelerate the conservation, recovery, and adaptation of biological diversity in a fast-changing world.
What We Do:
The world is a complex place, and solutions to problems are seldom obvious or accomplished in isolation. We collaborate with a wide diversity of partners and use a range of tools – both social and technical – to support wise planning, policy, and management for biodiversity, ecosystems, climate, energy, and water resources. Our toolbox includes collaborative measures to reduce conflicts and build consensus:
We work dynamically, finding creative new ways to solve problems. Whether your interest is endangered species, energy or water planning, or taking rapid climate adaptation or mitigation steps, we help you make complex decisions in efficient and mutually agreeable ways, using the best available evidence.
