World Resources Institute


The World Resources Institute (WRI) is an environmental think tank that goes beyond research to find practical ways to protect the earth and improve people's lives.

WRI provides objective information and practical proposals for policy and institutional change that will foster environmentally sound, socially equitable development.

WRI organizes its work around four key goals. These are: People & Ecosystems; Public Access to Information; Climate Protection; and Markets & Enterprise.
