Collaboration is integral to GLI. Corporate, nonprofit and public partners both benefit from and contribute to our work to improve understanding of land use change and enhance our ability to meet human needs while protecting the environment. For example:

  • GLI regularly advises agribusinesses on strategies for enhancing production while reducing environmental impact.
  • Non-governmental organizations and government agencies team with GLI to envision and advance sustainable agricultural policy and practice.
  • Private-sector partners are helping create tools we need to map land use worldwide.
  • GLI works with print and Web-based media outlets, museums and other educational forums to advance awareness and understanding of global food challenges and active pursuit of lasting solutions.

Together, we are changing the face of global agriculture.
