The Central African Biodiversity Alliance is an international partnership that seeks to develop an integrated framework for conserving central African biodiversity under climate change that is both evolutionary-informed and grounded in the socioeconomic constraints of the region. At present, this partnership is funded by the National Science Foundation-Partners in International Research and Education program and the Arcus Foundation.

The CGRC, managed by CTR and the UCLA Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, provides institutions and organizations with facilities for the analysis of molecular genetic data for wildlife conservation applications. It also serves as a long-term, international genetic material repository for DNA samples from birds and mammals for future use in genetic and conservation studies. Click here for more information.
CTR is creating IRTCs in tropical countries to facilitate interdisciplinary environmental, health, and social science research and training in partnership with local universities, government agencies, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations. IRTCs strive to integrate research results with sustainable development/conservation policy and programs appropriate to tropical economies. For infomation on the IRTC in Ecuador, click here.
