Conservation & Sustainable Development
WINNIPEG, CANADA — The International Institute for Sustainable Development's (IISD) mission is to champion sustainable development through innovation, partnerships, research and communications. The goal of this grant is to develop policy and practical responses to mitigate the impact of human migration on critical ecosystems and biodiversity in the Great Lakes region of Africa. Funding to IISD will meet the costs of desk-based research into the drivers of migration and its impacts on critical ecosystems across the Great Lakes region; research to identify and select appropriate methodologies or tools for assessing the impacts of migration on conservation and for developing responses; the selection of case study sites and the development of appropriate mitigation responses to mitigate the impacts of human migration on critical ecosystems.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded International Institute for Sustainable Development $450,000 between 2010 and 2013.
