Where We Work

Latin America

The world’s most biodiverse region is at a turning point.

With 40 percent of the world’s species, more than a quarter of the Earth’s forests and the second largest reef on the planet, Latin America is a beacon of hope for a planet facing a changing climate and growing demands for food, water and energy.
