Nia Tero is committed to working alongside Indigenous Peoples in biodiverse regions central to the well-being of all humanity, from Amazonia to Pasifika to the North America and beyond.

The Work We Do

We are committed to working alongside Indigenous Peoples in geographies central to the well-being of all humanity.

Our initial regions include the Pacific Islands, Amazonia, and the North American Boreal Forest of Canada, where we work with Indigenous Peoples who share a collective territory and have strong governance systems in place to protect their lands and waters. By hearing and working with Indigenous leaders, we ensure their vision guides development of sound local, national and global policies.
