The United States relies on the integrity and stability of the natural world to provide economic prosperity, safeguard the health of communities, and weather the effects of a changing climate. But the country is facing a rapid decline of its natural systems. The Center for American Progress Action Fund seeks to tackle the nature crisis by conserving 30 percent of all U.S. lands, water, and ocean by 2030 and promoting natural solutions to the climate crisis that benefit all communities.
