Natural Resource Development Network

The Natural Resources Development Network is committed to exploring, understanding, and sharing knowledge around the  multitude of factors influencing the sustainable management of natural resources, particularly as it relates to the rural regions who rely so heavily upon these industries.

Our core areas of focus are:

  • Food & food security,
  • Climate change,
  • Rural communities, and
  • Industry and trade,

These areas of focus are considered alongside cross-cutting themes of land, water, energy, and governance & policy. We invite any and all participation from interested individuals and organizations.
