IIED Annual Report 2013/14: Building bridges
Governments, NGOs, businesses, communities and individuals alike all help to shape equity, sustainability and social justice. But a mix of power differentials, vested interests and entrenched positions creates huge gaps between rich and poor, policy and practice, ideas and action, and investment and impact.
The International Institute for Environment and Development gathers the evidence and makes the connections needed to bridge the key divides across the environment-development landscape.
The Annual Report explores some of our work in this area in 2013-14, showing how we collaborate with partners to get local voices heard in regional, national and international decision-making arenas; and bring people from different cultures and sectors to share perspectives and experience.
