Research always is the beginning of our “theory of change” journey, ADMCF and helps us identify the specific environmental challenge and solution within our five key programmatic areas: marine ecology, water security, air quality, wildlife trade and forestry conservation finance.
We see our programmes as fundamentally interrelated as the tangible environmental challenges we face intersect with the biggest of our time: Our climate emergency. Consequently, we work towards “unsiloing” how we approach environmental challenges.
We believe it is impossible to think only of air or water pollution, about protecting our forests, our oceans and their biodiversity, without considering also the development challenges we face in Asia. There are inherently trade-offs involved in balancing sustainable growth and conservation – and in how to finance the change that needs to happen.
