Healthy lands safeguard your well-being and prosperity


Helping nonprofits, governments, and the private sector protect your valuable lands.

Healthy lands - lands that function normally - provide US$125 trillion per year in services. Healthy lands provide the oxygen you breathe, the food you eat, and the clean water you drink. Healthy lands provide you habitat for fish and wildlife and protection from storms. Healthy lands are where you go to relax and recreate.

Essential to our well-being and prosperity, the value of our lands is decreasing at the rate of US$4.3-20.2 trillion per year. More than 12 million people each year die prematurely because of air, water, and soil pollution, and climate change. More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. More than 800 million do not have enough food to eat. Our oceans are spotted with dead zones and fisheries are collapsing. One million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction, including those domesticated for food and agriculture.

Preserving the value of your lands is possible. Healthy Lands can help you succeed. Our strengths are strategy, planning, capacity-building, facilitation, expert review, and advice. Healthy Lands identifies relevant information, builds partnerships, and creates opportunities.

Strategy and Planning

Most challenges can be traced back to a weak or missing plan. Healthy Lands will help you clarify and commit to a strategy or plan that simplifies decision-making and produces results.

Capacity-building and facilitation

Maintaining the value of healthy lands is complex. New skills are required to succeed. Healthy Lands can help your organization manage staff, work with others, increase creativity and innovation, and build partnerships. We will also facilitate meetings within or between organizations.

Expert review and advice

You face information overload, information that represents multiple viewpoints. Determining which information is relevant and accurate is a challenge. Healthy Lands’ broad science and policy experience can help you focus on what is important.


The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide.
