Global Conservation Assistance


Global Conservation Assistance Overview

Global Conservation Assistance (GCA) is a new and innovative organization of social entrepreneurs dedicated to sustaining our natural environments through poverty reduction. Our mission is to build networks and assist community-based organizations with projects that integrate poverty reduction and ecosystem protection. Our primary goal is to provide rural communities with the tools and skills to manage their natural resource base and build sustainable livelihoods.  We are driven by the scientific information that clearly shows the changes in our economic and ecological behavior needed to sustain life on earth, and a moral commitment to culture and nature that forges a bond between this and all future generations.  Maintaining a diverse human environment is among our core values, and empowering women and youth is integral in all of our work.

GCA principally focuses its program and project work on practical measures to improve human livelihoods through ecosystem and wildlife protection.  We believe that the key to the prosperity of all people lies in their capacity to understand and use their natural resources sustainably and care for nature as stewards.  We are particularly committed to ensuring that impoverished rural communities have the tools and skills to participate in the sustainable management of the resources that most affect their lives.  We have learned that on-the-ground conservation only succeeds if the methods and solutions come from local communities.  At the same time, we feel that businesses and corporations must adopt a nature-friendly set of operating principles if they are to truly meet the needs and interests of the global community they serve.
