Ecosystems

IGES focuses on the protection and management of healthy, resilient ecosystems for the wellbeing of current and future generations.
 
Natural resources and ecosystems provide the foundations for a healthy planet and people. We work closely with governments, academic institutions and other development organisations to conduct demand-driven policy research, and provide practical solutions on a range of environmental issues, including biodiversity, forest management, resilient livelihoods and water.
