COIGNE inverts the global conservation model with a proactive community-led approach to keep profits in the hands of local communities. We build wildlife-compatible economies at scale by investing in locally owned enterprises tackling conservation, climate mitigation, food security, and supply-chain sustainability.
We aim to rebalance and protect natural capital assets with economically independent communities seeking to increase direct employment, enterprise ownership, and market-based incentives. The by-product will be a reduction in wildlife crime, asset stripping, and ecosystem destruction.
COIGNE makes conservation durable to withstand shocks while enabling indigenous and local communities to take control of their natural capital and break the cycle of generational poverty, wildlife trade, and biodiversity loss.
