Science

At Earth Innovation Institute, we believe that rigorously established evidence and broad dissemination of information is the basis for good policy-making and progressive social change. Our Science program focuses on designing and conducting research and analysis driven by the environmental and socioeconomic challenges tropical nations face.

Together with our partners, we study diverse elements of these challenges including the nature of contract arrangements between smallholders and logging and agriculture companies, the impacts of fire and drought on rainforest ecology, the financial and policy barriers to sustainable land-use, the impacts of deforestation on hydropower generation, and methods for assessing fisheries and forest stocks at community levels.
