It All Begins With Nature

The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) envisions a world where protecting and promoting nature works in concert with sustainable development and improving human well-being.

SNAPP delivers evidence-based, scalable solutions to global challenges at the intersection of nature conservation, sustainable development, and human well-being.

How SNAPP Works

Experts, scientists and practitioners convene from around the globe to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges, in ways that no single organization could accomplish alone. SNAPP builds a collaborative web — consisting of some of the foremost conservation and humanitarian organizations, academics, government agencies and multilateral institutions — to develop cutting-edge solutions. Solutions that can make a real difference for nature and the people who rely on it.

The Working Groups

At the heart of SNAPP are Working Groups — teams of scientists, practitioners and stakeholders that answer specific critical questions at the conservation/human well-being nexus. Learn more about our Working Group Request for Proposals and our current Working Groups:
