Natural Resources Safeguards and Security as a Part of the Indo-Pacific Vision

Join us for a panel discussion about the efforts of USAID, the Stimson Center, the Wildlife Conservation Trust, and the World Wildlife Fund to mitigate the impacts of infrastructure development in the Indo-Pacific and reduce illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

USAID’s strategic approach to advance America’s vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific includes improving natural resource management, especially since the region is rich in forests, fisheries, and other natural resources. Unfortunately, irresponsible infrastructure development projects and transnational environmental crime erode the natural resources upon which many of our partner countries depend for their long-term growth. USAID supports activities that combat wildlife poaching and trafficking, IUU fishing, and illegal logging in the Indo-Pacific to help protect these natural resources.
