THE STORY:

EcoLogic works with communities to foster sustainable livelihoods and protect biodiversity. We aim to conserve unique landscapes in Central America and Mexico by putting poor, rural communities in charge of managing local natural resources. By working with local partners we are helping communities become better environmental stewards of their land.

Our Four Core Initiatives:
•Water Resource Management

•Forest Conservation

•Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES)

•Sustainable Livelihood Alternatives
Water Resource Management
In Central America, only 21% of the freshwater available in 1950 remains today. This decline is due to extensive deforestation and a lack of economic incentives for sustainable land use. We work with community led water committees to protect their water sources through watershed management.

Forest Conservation
Through reforestation, the installation of wood-saving stoves for families, establishment of agroforestry plots that reduce carbon emissions and increase crop yield and protected area management, reforestation and more we aim to turn the tide on deforestation.

Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES)
A voluntary transaction where the provider of an environmental service is compensated by a buyer for continuously securing the provision of that service. In other words, the buyer compensates the provider for protecting the environment and ensuring that an ecosystem service will continue to exist.

Sustainable Livelihood Alternatives
We understand that lack of alternatives is a major reason the rural poor degrade natural resources. EcoLogic works to promote sustainable agriculture, non-timber forest products and community enterprise. We are working to provide these alternative opportunities that improve individual and community well-being.
