The Heinz Center
The H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, or the Heinz Center, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving the scientific and economic foundation for environmental policy.
The Center’s staff and partners presently have four primary areas of concentration including: Ecosystem Management, Global Change and Biodiversity Protection, Environmental Quality and Human Health, and Critical Policy Leadership.
The Heinz Center focuses much of program resources on advancing global, national and local efforts to mitigate and adapt to the worst effects of climate change while preserving fragile ecosystems. The Global Change and Biodiversity Protection program , led by Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, is focused on enhancing the capacity of the forests, plants, soil and peat to sequester carbon. This program involves multi-faceted efforts to advance land-based climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts at the international, national and local levels.
