The Global Canopy Programme is an alliance of 37 scientific institutions in 19 countries around the world, which lead the world in forest canopy research, education and conservation. Its work programmes aim to define and explore the range and economic value of forest ecosystem services and to share the findings with decision-makers in Government and finance. The newtowk applies the tropical forest intelligence to protect forests and the vital ecosystem services they provide to humanity. The Global Canopy Programme is a think-tank and catalyst, actively testing innovative ways to protect tropical forests in a globalised economy that still values them more dead than alive. It believes that only multidisciplinary approaches can meet the complex challenges facing forests, and for the last 5 years it has successfully built up policy and business programmes to complement its science heritage.
