Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe) reduces environmental resource conflicts by providing tools to civil society organizations to catalyze collective action. They work to influence policy and investor priorities.

They are an international, non-profit, entrepreneurial change initiative working to address resource competition, and strengthen governance and livelihood resilience in interconnected resource domains and landscapes, including agricultural lands, forests, fisheries, inland waterways and coastal zones.

They foster innovations that sustain critical ecosystem services, build resilient local economies and increase social and economic well-being.

CoRE is also supported by the CGIAR, the global science partnership for a food secure future, through the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets. Their work is also funded in part by the Skoll Foundation, the International Fund for Agriculture and Development, and other partners.

Why We Partner

We believe that effective conversations are key to addressing the root causes of environmental resource conflicts. We also believe multi-stakeholder dialogues are part of an important process to nurture resilient local economies and livelihoods, build capacity to adapt to changing environments, and increase social and economic equity.


Our partnership with CoRe supports the build-out of Banyan Academy, a cross-regional learning and exchange network, bringing together leading civil society organizations and centers of excellence positioned to support multi-stakeholder platforms and associated collaborative approaches in transformational change.
