Description

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) works with a broad spectrum of local, national and international partners, including governments, NGOs, communities and the corporate sector. Over the last 15 years FFI has developed a number of collaborative alliances, including cross-sector partnerships and innovative initiatives. Mining and other extractive industries impact negatively on biodiversity and communities, but they can make a significant contribution to sustainable development when environmental, social, and corporate governance issues are effectively managed, and more can be achieved for biodiversity conservation by working with extractive industries than against them.
