World Resources Institute

The World Resources Institute’s mission (WRI) is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth’s environment and its capacity to provide for the needs and aspirations of current and future generations.

We are a global research organization with more than 1,200 staff and offices in 12 countries: Brazil, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, the Netherlands, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. We work with partners in more than 50 countries.

We work with governments, businesses, multilateral institutions and civil society groups to develop practical solutions that improve people’s lives and ensure nature can thrive. We organize our work around seven global challenges: Food, Forests, Water, Energy, Climate, the Ocean and Cities. We analyze these issues through the lenses of our four Centers of Excellence: Business, Economics, Finance and Equity.

As part of our “Count it, Change it, Scale it” approach, we work with partners to mobilize commissions and major global initiatives. These delivery platforms allow us to create large-scale change with lasting impact.
