Natural Resource Management

If the conservation of natural resources goes wrong nothing else will go right

Natural resource management (NRM) is the management of natural resources such as land, water, soil, plants and animals, with a particular focus on how management affects the quality of life for both present and future generations (stewardship).  Environmental management is similar to natural resource management.

We recognize that climate change is a threat to lives, livelihoods and to all of creation all across the world. We continue to witness the ways that it exacerbates poverty and inequality and undermines the ability of communities, particularly in developing countries like Ethiopia, to enjoy a full life with dignity.
