The Regeneration Project - Interfaith Power and Light

The Regeneration Project is an interfaith ministry devoted to deepening the connection between ecology and faith. Our goal is to help people of faith recognize and fulfill their responsibility for the stewardship of creation. We do this through educational programs for clergy and congregations that achieve tangible environmental results and impact public policy.

The word “regeneration” has personal, biological and institutional significance.  It is the process of spiritual, moral and ecological renewal. We seek to make a practical link between spiritual and ecological health.  TRP envisions that people of faith will serve as the foundation for a national movement that addresses ecological issues from theological roots. Our purpose, therefore, is to expand and deepen this link between religious faith and action, particularly in regards to environmental protection.

Tropical Forest Group

The Tropical Forest Group (TFG) catalyzes policy, science and advocacy to conserve and restore the planet’s remaining tropical forests. TFG works urgently and responsibly to save tropical forests, fight climate change and improve the lives of local people. TFG is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered as a corporation in the State of California. We are an accredited observer to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. TFG has one full time Director, several part-time Staff, seventeen Affiliates, five Board Members and three Advisors. Several hundred volunteers have helped TFG over the past few years.

The Tropical Forest Group fills four strategic niches.

1. We orchestrate high-impact education and advocacy campaigns aimed at increasing tropical forest conservation finance. We do this primarily through our work with UN negotiations on climate change. 
We also educate the public about US policy, notably the Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA) and domestic US cap-and-trade legislation .

2. TFG provides direct support to community forestry projects in developing countries. TFG has donated expertise and project equipment to community forestry projects worldwide. TFG has helped forest protection and restoration projects raise funds, attract attention, identify donors and recruit qualified volunteers. TFG also can help run remote wildlife monitoring and professional video production. TFG provides free or reduced cost advice to projects in conflict and post-conflict areas.

3. TFG does strategic research and consulting to institutions on tropical forest policy, scientific methodologies, sustainable finance, and project development and evaluation. Recent clients include the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, The CarbonNeutral CompanyWWF US, and The Africa Carbon Livelihoods Trust.

4. TFG partners with academic institutions to perform ecosystem carbon modeling, measurements, analysis, statistics and accounting, including:

  • Moderate-resolution forest change detection from 1990 to 2000 and 2005.
  • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (Tier 1) estimates of tropical forest carbon stocks. We use ENVISAT Meris data from 2005 with a 300m resolution and other global carbon models.
  • Measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) field-based carbon studies. 
  • Carbon and nitrogen content of trees, vegetation and soils. TFG is partnering with Dr. Elsa Cleland’s Plant and Ecosystem Ecology lab at UCSD to provide state-of-the-art lab facilities and statistical support.
