Solving conservation challenges, collectively

We offer fresh perspectives on critical conservation challenges and help develop new solutions that deliver real, sustainable change.

The Luc Hoffmann Institute brings together the knowledge and resources of stakeholders from different scientific fields, governments, local communities and business.

By convening new dialogues, we provide the opportunity to work collectively on solving pressing issues through:

– Thought leadership to provide new ways of thinking about how conservation is designed and implemented;

– Incubation to translate emerging ideas into practical action;

– Insight to challenge existing approaches; and 

– Rapid-response dialogues to help our partners respond to contentious issues in a scientifically robust way.

Through these four workstreams, we will tackle issues of different scale, scope and level of urgency. The solutions generated will be based on new science and knowledge, policy measures and on-the-ground action that will benefit biodiversity and society.

Our Annual Report 2016-2017 outlines the achievements of the institute’s first phase under its 2015 strategy.

People are tired of the science and information overload. We need to forge workable solutions collectively with scientists, decision makers, implementers, business and communities, harnessing their diverse expertise.
