Our mission
Our mission is to find solutions to the challenges that the region faces in order to achieve its vision of prosperity, sustainability and biodiversity conservation. In our daily work we promote the development and effective management of protected areas as well as sustainable use of natural resources, e.g. through sustainable forestry management. We promote integrated river basin management as well as sustainable agricultural practices. We seek to maximise the opportunities and minimise the threats of the new market economy for conservation and sustainable livelihoods by shaping the regulatory environment and demonstrating long-term solutions. We address Climate change as a major challenge to the globe.

Our guiding principles
We are personal, professional, credible and accountable, efficient and effective, innovative and creative. Most importantly, we are solutions oriented. We use the best available scientific information to address issues and critically evaluate our endeavours. We seek dialogue and partnership, but are challenging where this is necessary. We respect local people and their needs, and involve them in determining the future of their communities. We enhance our capacity by empowering and partnering with others. We are global, multi-cultural, non-partisan and independent.
