The Natural Resources Security and Governance APS proposes the following theory of change:
IF the governance of natural resources and the areas from which these resources are derived is strengthened,
IF the demand for illegally- or unsustainably-sourced natural resources declines through more effective environmental law enforcement and behavior change,
IF the sustainable supply of ecosystem services and natural resources is improved through better management and valuation, increased private sector investments, and stronger habitat protection, and
IF diverse stakeholders at various levels are supportive and empowered to deliver sustainable natural resource management,
THEN the natural resources sector can contribute to the country’s economic development and environmental resilience,
THEREBY helping people and ecosystems thrive.
