Portfolios & Projects
Our in-house team conducts research and analysis on a number of important themes in global conservation, as well as performing due diligence on charities. This helps us map out where the greatest needs are for conservation, what needs to be done, and the most effective organisations to partner with. This research forms the basis of our portfolios. These are made up of projects and partners that we are confident will deliver results. We currently have four portfolios: three for threatened ecosystems: forests, oceans and freshwater and one for species.
Our research has led us to identify several key approaches that we support across all of our portfolios. These include capacity building, improving transparency, trialling new and alternative approaches, raising the profile and knowledge of overlooked species and ecosystems, and addressing land and water grabs for commercial interests.
Our portfolios overlap but, taken individually, provide a lens through which to understand and engage with conservation. Each is populated by projects—either legacy initiatives sponsored by the Synchronicity Foundation, or new seed-funded programmes. More information about these projects can be found through the links below.
