• The Coastal Resources Center (CRC) has over 35 years experience in integrated ecosystem governance with a focus on coastal developing nations, including some of the most poor but biodiversity rich countries in Asia, Africa, the Pacific, and Latin America. The Center uses an integrated approach to natural resources management that gives attention to issues that are important to coastal communities but that do not fall solely within a more sectoral approach to natural resources management or conservation. The Center is also well respected for its experience in capacity building—addressing issues that cross a range of scales and technical topics while at the same time considering the needs and context of the place.

  • Conservation International's (CI) ) mission is to empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature for the well-being of humanity, building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration. Its Population, Health and Environment program seeks to reduce human pressures on the limited natural resources in rural, biologically rich areas and improve local conservation activities. It provides reproductive health and family planning (RH/FP) services to remote populations living in some of the world’s critical hotspots and uses integrated PHE approaches to conserving biodiversity—helping rural communities in biodiversity rich areas better understand the relationship between having smaller, healthier families and improving stewardship of natural resources.

  • Path Foundation Philippines Inc. (PFPI) was founded in 1992 to improve the health and development of communities and people living throughout the Philippines archipelago.

PFPI is well known for its Integrated Population and Coastal Resource Management (IPOPCORM) initiative, the largest ongoing population-environment project in the Philippines and the Indo-Pacific region.
