Land & Resources Management

How we manage our natural resources, land, water, soil, plants and animals, will affect the quality of life for present and future generations. Our approach is congruent with the concept of sustainable development, a scientific principle that forms a basis for large-scale land management and environmental governance to conserve and preserve natural resources.
