During the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to our mission, our partners, and our staff. The pandemic is undeniably connected to our mission to help people and nature thrive in harmony. Scientists have been warning for years that deforestation increases the risk of infectious diseases, epidemics, and even pandemics.
The pandemic has impacted the work that we and our partners do on the ground, and with our supply chain and global partners. It is destabilizing our front-line partner communities whose economic well-being is essential to our mission. Check out daily updates from our colleagues and partners around the world.
We are carefully tracking restrictions on movements which include, for example, limitations to harvests, training, and supply chains. And, we are continually seeking ways to support our stakeholders, while protecting their safety and security, as that is our primary concern.
