Global Sustainability and Resilience Program

As the pace of global social and environmental change accelerates, truly sustainable development requires resilient communities. From remote forest villages to new urban slums, local communities depend on networks of resilience to obtain the critical elements of survival: water, food, health, energy, livelihoods, and security.

The Wilson Center’s Global Sustainability and Resilience Program seeks to support the development of inclusive, resilient networks in local communities facing global change. By providing a platform for sharing lessons, mapping knowledge, and linking people and ideas, GSRP and its affiliated programs empower policymakers, practitioners, and community members to participate in the global dialogue on sustainability and resilience. Empowered communities are better able to develop flexible, diverse, and equitable networks of resilience that can improve their health, preserve their natural resources, and build peace between people in a changing world.

GSRP is an overarching initiative that combines the ongoing efforts of the Environmental Change and Security ProgramChina Environment Forum,  Maternal Health Initiative, and Urban Sustainability Laboratory, integrating and building upon their already substantial contributions to the field. To stay up to date on the program’s issues and activities, follow our blog at NewSecurityBeat.org.
