Natural Resources 

EWV’s Natural Resources program boosts incomes and protects biodiversity through profitable resource management and industry building in areas with sensitive ecosystems.  The program is a pioneering effort to establish sustainable local processing enterprises by providing business assistance and introducing resource management techniques to avoid over-harvesting. Dubbed "enterprise-based biodiversity conservation," EWV's approach promotes the acquisition of economic control over natural resources by small producers through land and resource tenure; conservation education; policy advocacy; and technical and managerial training for community-based institutions.  To get more detailed information about EWV’s Natural Resources projects click below.
