Asia Pacific and the Road to 2030:

People, Policy and Prosperity for the Planet

For over three decades, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has been a trusted conservation leader in Asia Pacific. We are proud of our contributions, yet the stark reality is that Asia Pacific continues to lose nature at a rate faster than anywhere else in the world, and the region’s carbon emissions continue to rise. 

To increase the scale and sustainability of TNC’s impact in Asia Pacific by 2030, we are focusing our investment in three pivotal areas: People, Policy and Prosperity. And we are committed to achieving set outcomes for Asia Pacific as part of TNC's global 2030 goals. Read more below.

Why Asia Pacific Matters

The region is losing nature at a rate faster than anywhere else, yet its ecosystems are critical to combat climate change and biodiversity loss.

  • Population


    people live in the region, or roughly 60% of the world's population.

  • Wildlife


    of all species in Southeast Asia could be lost by the turn of the century; at least half of these would be global extinctions.

  • Money


    or 63% of Asia Pacific's GDP at risk due to nature loss.

  • Sea


    faster than the global average sea level rise for low-lying areas in the Pacific.

  • Mangroves


    of the region’s coral reefs and mangroves are lost due to extensive coastal development and unsustainable exploitation of marine resources.

  • CO2


    of the three largest emitters of carbon and other greenhouse gases are based in the region (China and India).
