Pact works with local communities and governments to forge effective management systems and build responsible nature-based enterprises, allowing people to benefit from their natural environment.

To make lasting change for the next generation, communities must have the skills, resources and opportunities they need to responsibly benefit from the natural resources around them, from fish to forests to mineral deposits. This is what Pact works toward. Our practical, integrated, systemic approach to natural resource management focuses on the interdependencies of nature and people, to the benefit of both.

We empower communities to make their own resource management decisions, working within the realities of population pressure, poverty, an increasing demand for energy and resources and the impacts of a changing climate.

Through our work, we improve biodiversity and conservation and foster more diversified, sustainable and profitable livelihoods so that those who are challenged by poverty and marginalization can own their future.
