World Resources Institute

WRI spurs progress by providing practical strategies for change and effective tools to implement them. We measure our success in the form of new policies, products, and practices that shift the ways governments work, businesses operate, and people act.

WRI’s work is organized around five programs (climate and energy, people and ecosystems, institutions and governance, markets and enterprise, and transport), each of which has supporting five-year objectives and multiple projects. In addition, we are exploring a new program on cities, which would link our sustainable transport program with a growing body of work around urban sustainability focused on China, India, and Brazil.
