About Our Projects
Guided by our five-year Strategic Plan, we respond to requests from developing country governments that seek to strengthen their capacity to sustainably manage and govern their natural resource endowment for the long-term growth and prosperity of their countries. We deliver targeted support through advisory services, applied research, education and training, and multi-stakeholder engagement.
Our projects are designed and delivered collaboratively to meet the needs of our developing country partners in alignment with our five focus areas:
- Improving Public Sector Capacity and Governance
- Strengthening Integrated Resource Management
- Transforming Artisanal and Small-scale Mining
- Engaging Communities and Sharing Benefits
- Building Capacity through CIRDI Learning Programs
Our Vision, Mission and Values guide our decisions and activities, and three crosscutting themes inform our projects:
- Gender equality
- Environmental sustainability
- Good governance
Each project is built on a performance management framework to ensure that our activities are guided by their potential measurable impact towards our ultimate goal of poverty alleviation. In addition, we integrate Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets and indicators into our projects so we can contribute to achieving these global goals.
