We foster innovative multi-sectoral collaboration to address complex crises related to natural resources, the environment and/or climate change.

  • We enable actors to understand the different parties to natural resource conflicts – their positions, interests, and possible strategies and scenarios – in order to build trust in processes designed to identify solutions.
  • We foster modes of collaboration between different actors designed to overcome low trust and to encourage joint work towards sustainable outcomes around natural resource-related conflicts.
  • We help actors overcome their mutual suspicion or come together to improve the lives of those affected by environmental conflict and degradation to be improved.
  • We explore creative – and at times unconventional – partnerships to resolve big environmental issues, particularly those related to climate change.
