We transform how natural resources are managed in areas where security and human rights are at risk. We investigate and develop approaches for natural resources to improve security, development, and equality. We are an independent non-profit, collaborating with local partners for lasting change.
We envision a world where resources contribute to equitable peace and development, and where communities are empowered to decide how their natural resources are managed.
We investigate, monitor, and analyze how natural resources are managed and how these systems can be improved.
We develop, test, and deliver improved systems for the management of natural resources through technical assistance, information sharing, and capacity building.
We advance constructive dialogue with stakeholders including civil society, policymakers, industry, and communities to improve how natural resources are managed.
Transformation 2018-2023 establishes our priorities for the next five years as we introduce out new name and visual identity as IMPACT. Our Strategic Plan, global in scope, is the first to address how we will integrate these elements while remaining committed to the groundbreaking research and local partnerships that have defined our work.
