Tomorrow Needs Us Today
For clean water. For a stable climate. For a resilient future.
We can solve the greatest challenges facing our world today, but we can't do it alone. We still have time to make a difference, but it's running out. Now is our chance to take action, together.
IISD has two key funding priorities right now: To support our world-renowned fresh water researchers at the Experimental Lakes Area, who are working hard to solve a wide range of challenges facing our lakes, including plastic pollution and oil spills; and to secure funding for our Resilience team, who are helping people across the globe adapt to the effects of climate change while protecting against future crises.

What We Do and How We Do It
IISD works to inspire better decisions and turn those decisions into actions that help people and the planet. We are building a sustainable future that balances the needs of environments and economies. Here are some of the ways we are making a difference.
Sink, Swim … or Fight Back
After a devastating cyclone struck, the NAP Global Network—hosted by IISD—helped Fiji make a plan to build resilience.
Is It Raining Plastic?
We need more research to understand the effects of microplastics on our fresh water—and find solutions. That's where our team of experts come in.
Clean Power With a Clean Conscience
Lowering our carbon footprint cannot come at the expense of people in the world’s most vulnerable places.
Let's create a more sustainable world together. Get in touch today.
