GRASP promotes great ape conservation efforts that provide growth in income, employment, and human well-being and equity – while preventing the loss of biodiversity -- by advocating so-called “Green Economy” approaches to prevent species and habitat loss, while encouraging local, regional and international investment in projects that offer economic and social gain.

As development and economic growth expand across the globe, it is essential that GRASP focus on sustainable development, and identify opportunities to promote the natural value of great apes and forests.

GRASP advocates for new approaches in payment for ecosystem services (PES) and revenue sharing, and helps national government embrace sustainable development, thereby minimizing the environmental risks and degradation to natural ecosystems.
