WRI India is a research organization with experts and staff who work closely with leaders to turn big ideas into action to sustain a healthy environment—the foundation of economic opportunity and human well-being. We envision an equitable and prosperous planet driven by the wise management of natural resources. We aspire to create a world where the actions of government, business, and communities combine to eliminate poverty and sustain the natural environment for all people. WRI India works on a unique three-fold approach highlighed below;
Count It : We start with data. We conduct independent research and draw on the latest technology to develop new insights and recommendations. Our rigorous analysis identifies risks, unveils opportunities, and informs smart strategies.
Change It : We use our research to influence government policies, business strategies and civil society action. We test projects with communities, companies, and government agencies to build a strong evidence base. Then, we work with partners to deliver change on the ground that alleviates poverty and strengthens society. We hold ourselves accountable to ensure our outcomes will be bold and enduring.
Scale It : We don’t think small. Once tested, we work with partners to adopt and expand our efforts regionally and globally. We engage with decision makers to carry out our ideas and elevate our impact. We measure success through government and business actions that improve peoples’ lives and sustain a healthy environment.
