The main areas of focus
They focus on catalyzing a low-carbon economy, advancing clean energy, reducing the environmental impact of the world's food systems, reducing forest loss, mitigating global water risks, and scaling sustainable urban transport solutions.
Partnership with governments and businesses
World Resources Institute takes action by partnering with governments and businesses. For example, last year World Resources Institute was instrumental in obtaining pledges to restore millions of acres of land in Latin American, getting commitments from 300 cities to take action to manage greenhouse gas emissions, and convincing 400 large companies to reduce food waste by 50%.
