OUR FOCUS

Natural resources,

climate change and

disaster risk reduction

Balancing growth and environment

Rapid economic growth, primarily driven by natural resource extraction, is putting new pressures on the environmental assets on which rural communities traditionally depend. Strengthening human and financial capacities to manage natural resources at the community level and enforcing relevant laws is critical to ensure sustainable development

Supporting communities, improving governance

We support growth that does not harm the environment. Our work focuses on three priority areas: encouraging all national development planning to recognize links between environmental harm and poverty; strengthening the response to climate change; and improving environmental governance and promoting community-based natural resource management.
