We believe that effective and mutually beneficial partnerships are essential to creating a better world. We cannot work in isolation – sharing knowledge, expertise and resources not only bolsters the capacity of a single organization but can also coordinate and streamline efforts and increase impact.
At CIRDI, our ability to generate positive impact depends on respectful, collaborative partnerships with governments, communities, industry, international agencies, academic institutions, NGOs and resource development associations.
As a independent centre of expertise, we can act as a neutral convener to bring together diverse interests, leverage expertise, create productive networks and foster collaboration – with the common goal of reducing poverty through sustainable natural resource development.
Our impact depends on effective and mutually beneficial partnerships with governments, communities, industry, international agencies, academic institutions, NGOs and resource development associations.
We are committed to the values of independence and transparency, both as a means to foster better development outcomes and to maintain the integrity of our work. In accordance with these values, we will not accept funding or engage in partnerships that impose limits or restrictions on our independence in advice, training, research, conclusions or resulting publications.
