Environment and Water Resilience

Helping countries develop multifaceted strategies to protect their natural resources

With a holistic approach, we bring together private- and public-sector stakeholders to manage natural resources and promote sustainable livelihoods while conserving unique biodiversity.

By improving service delivery and enhancing institutions, policy, and technical capacity, we strengthen water systems and sector management.  We work with governments, communities, and key stakeholders interested in applying climate resilience frameworks, low-emissions development strategies, and other new tools and approaches.

In the field of wildlife protection, we are building the capacity of law enforcement and wildlife management and strengthening regional coordination. In addition, we work to develop alternative livelihoods, target community-based incentives, and reduce demand for wildlife products.
