Cool Earth


Mission Statement

Cool Earth is a charity that works with rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change.


Cool Earth supports local and indigenous knowledge to develop innovative ways to address threats to the forest while making communities stronger and more resilient.
We share the most effective conservation methods around the world and invest in those with the potential for best outcomes for people and rainforest.
Cool Earth works with communities who want to protect their forest. From setting up an in-country team to working directly with communities and local NGOs to develop their capacity, our partnerships are community-led and adaptable to each location.
⁠Join us and help local people grow sustainable incomes to fight deforestation. Protect carbon-rich rainforest and preserve our planet now and for the future.⁠

Program Details

Cool Earth works alongside 14 community partnerships in the world’s most threatened rainforest, across four continents and seven countries.
Each partnership is different. Through research and discussion, Cool Earth and the community establish the best ways to work together and identify the key threats and drivers of deforestation in each unique setting.
With a shared vision, long-term resilience goals are identified and set for the partnership. These aims will all be different, from developing sustainable incomes, or creating new education opportunities, to achieving greater food security.
Whether it’s climate, food or finance, resilient communities are key to the long term protection of their forest. By investing in sustainable livelihoods, strong self-determining communities have greater capacity to protect their forest. We support communities to become empowered and continue protecting rainforest beyond the end of a partnership. We aim to have equipped them with the tools and skills to have no need for Cool Earth funds long term.
Using a combination of outcome monitoring, satellite analysis, and reviews of programme delivery costs, we can evaluate the long-term effectiveness of each partnership and the most successful approaches to achieve positive impacts for rainforest protection.
