The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) is a fund to protect the world's most diverse and endangered biodiversity areas, also known as biodiversity hotspots. Conservation International administers the global program on behalf of the fund's partners: the French Development Agency, the World Bank, Conservation International, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the World Environment Fund. Environment (GEF), the Government of Japan and the European Union. A board of high-level representatives from each donor partner manages this fund.

CEPF supports non-governmental organizations, community groups and other civil society partners in implementing strategic conservation projects in biodiversity hotspots. CEPF's focus is to provide opportunities for its beneficiaries to preserve the rich natural resources of hotspots that are vital to people's well-being and the health of the economy in general.

After supporting the Atlantic Forest with investments between 2001 and 2008, the CEPF Donor Council chose the Cerrado in 2013 to receive investments. This decision was followed by the construction of an Ecosystem Profile, through a process of consultations and meetings, which took place between 2014 and 2015, and the selection of the team that will be responsible for the implementation of the initiative in the Cerrado.

Following a selection process, in April 2016, the Brazilian International Institute of Education (IEB) was chosen by the CEPF Donor Council to act as Regional Implementation Team (RIT) for the Cerrado Biodiversity Hotspot, beginning this month. July 2016 and expected completion in June 2021.

As CEPF implementation team, IEB will lead the program in the hotspot, converting the investment strategy defined in the Ecosystem Profile into a coherent portfolio of support. IEB was selected as RIT because it demonstrated a strong track record of work experience in Brazil, program management of similar size, scale and complexity to RIT, and experience in direct management of small support programs.
