Abstract:

The World Resources Institute is an environmental think tank that goes beyond research to create practical ways to protect the Earth and improve people's lives. Our mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth's environment for current and future generations. Our program meets global challenges by using knowledge to catalyze public and private action: To reverse damage to ecosystems. We protect the capacity of ecosystems to sustain life and prosperity. To expand participation in environmental decisions. We collaborate with partners worldwide to increase people's access to information and influence over decisions about natural resources. To avert dangerous climate change. We promote public and private action to ensure a safe climate and sound world economy. To increase prosperity while improving the environment. We challenge the private sector to grow by improving environmental and community well-being. In all of our policy research and work with institutions, WRI tries to build bridges between ideas and actions, meshing the insights of scientific research, economic and institutional analyses, and practical experience with the need for open and participatory decision-making.
