Our View of the World
Over the last two decades, the world has witnessed remarkable progress on human development— reduced poverty, extended life expectancy, lower maternal mortality, and expanded children’s education. But these improvements have been far too slow and too inequitable. Moreover, human behavior is degrading natural resources at an unsustainable rate.
At WRI, we believe there’s a better way. A better future is possible
With focused effort and bold action, we can drive systemic change that will improve lives, drive economic growth, reduce inequity, and ensure the natural world can thrive.
Our work is guided by our strategic plan, Delivering Impact at Scale (2018-2022), which lays out our vision of a better future.
