We work in those remote areas in developing countries that lie in the rain-shadow of research and development attention, areas where the minimum requirements for supporting development do not exist, such as high mountain regions, drylands and areas emerging from conflict.

We seek to serve and enhance the quality of life of the most vulnerable, isolated and underserved communities, and improve the management of the fragile ecosystems that typically characterize less-accessible regions. In the drive towards the Millennium Development Goals, these are the farthest behind and the last to be reached.

The gulf between the more developed parts of the country and the remote, rural areas is very wide, and in many cases it continues to grow. People living in remote areas are much lower on almost all human development indicators.
Most remote, isolated areas are high in natural resource wealth, with significant levels of endemism as well. This wealth is at great risk however, and many rare and valuable species are endangered.
