The Global Canopy Programme is an alliance of scientific institutions around the world, applying the tropical forest intelligence of its networks to protect forests, to protect the vital ecosystem services they provide to humanity. It is a think-tank and catalyst, actively testing innovative ways to protect tropical forests. The GCP has a track record of achievement in bringing different interests together for the common goal of forest protection. Their thinking led to the Prince’s Rainforest Project and the Forest Footprint Disclosure Project, and their publications such as the Little REDD Book have been widely influential.

Synchronicity Earth supported GCP in their work with policy makers and the financial community, with the aim of leveraging large amounts of public and private sector funding for large-scale tropical forest protection.
