Protecting Nature's Hotspots for people and prosperity

How CEPF Works


CEPF strives to conserve biodiversity and build sustainable conservation by empowering local civil society to take the lead. For each biodiversity hotspot where CEPF invests, CEPF commissions an analysis and conservation strategy called an "ecosystem profile" that is prepared with input from local stakeholders and other experts. The profile is used to guide grant-making in the hotspot.
