International projects

We believe:

That the world's natural resources should be managed in an environmentally responsible manner both nationally and internationally. This means ensuring equitable access and distribution between the rich and the poor - both within and between countries and between generations. To achieve this, nature's ability to provide a secure livelihood for all must be maintained. This assumes that the loss of biodiversity is halted and reversed, and that greenhouse gas emissions are reduced in line with scientists' recommendations to avoid serious climate change.

We believe that international environmental and management regimes should be open and democratic, promoting development with reduced environmental impacts. At the same time vulnerable groups' rights to manage and harvest the natural resources must be safeguarded.

Our international projects are
supported by the Norwegian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Norad.
