Backstopped by science, evidence and context, Resilient Landscapes is a new CIFOR-ICRAF venture created to spur large-scale impact investment in nature-based solutions to address our planet’s most urgent existential crises. Acting as a bridge between the public and private sector, it translates robust science and research into practical business solutions and green economy investment opportunities ranging from sustainable supply chains to impactful carbon offsets.

Founded in 1993 and 1978 respectively, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) are leading intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and centers of scientific excellence that conduct research-in-development on the most pressing challenges facing the world’s landscapes. The two centers merged in 2019 and strive to use the world’s best science to address climate, hunger, poverty and biodiversity challenges.
