The Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development has its heart in the nearly one million acres ofpristine Guiana Shield rainforest that serves as a living laboratory for scientific research, responsible tourism, and sustainable tropical forest management. Iwokrama has a unique and ambitious conservation and development mandate that seeks to show that rainforest resources can be used sustainably to generate economic benefits through traditional and scientific resource-based knowledge and management.

To remain on the cutting-edge of rainforest-based research, Iwokrama has partnered with several organisations worldwide to plan, implement, and analyse key projects relating to its mandate. Among these partners is Newcastle University where a team of established researchers are pushing boundaries in the areas of climate, hydrology, biodiversity and cultural heritage.
