International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)
|Name:||International Institute for Environment and Development|
|URL to homepage:||http://www.iied.org/|
IIED aims to provide expertise and leadership in researching and achieving sustainable development at local, national, regional and global levels. In alliance with others we seek to help shape a future that ends global poverty and delivers and sustains efficient and equitable management of the world's natural resources.
With a focus on issues of equity and justice, and the rights and needs of poor people, the Institute works in an interdisciplinary way, addressing the connections between economic development, the environment and human needs.
IIED's principal aim is to improve the management of natural resources so that communities and countries of the South can improve living standards without jeopardising their resource base. Its work is undertaken with, or on behalf of governments and international agencies, the academic community, foundations and non-governmental organisations, community groups and the people they represent.
