United Nations University – Institute of Advanced Studies
The United Nations University – Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) conducts research, postgraduate education and capacity development, both in-house and in cooperation with an interactive network of academic institutions and international organizations.

The Christensen Fund
The Christensen Fund focuses on the “bio-cultural” – the rich but neglected adaptive interweave of people and place, culture and ecology. The Fund’s mission is to buttress the efforts of people and institutions who believe in a biodiverse world infused with artistic expression and work to secure ways of life and landscapes that are beautiful, bountiful and resilient.
