Who We Are
The Latin America Conservation Council (LACC) is a group of global leaders working with The Nature Conservancy to find solutions to three of Latin America's greatest challenges: Water Security, Sustainable Food, and Smart Infrastructure.
The LACC was formed in 2011 to work with civil society, government, and the private sector to help conserve the region's "natural capital" - its healthy rivers, forests, and seas - and to develop innovative, pragmatic and scalable solutions to three widespread environmental challenges: Water Security, Sustainable Food, and Smart Infrastructure.
The Council works in partnership with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the world's largest conservation organization. Since its inception, the LACC uses TNC’s model of work-on-the-ground and science- and nature-based solutions developed with partners to care for nature while providing for people.
