The World Resources Institute has long been committed to providing open access to reliable data for actionable change. In support of that mission, WRI has worked with dozens of partners to build a suite of data platforms that take data from across the Institute and around the world to break down siloes and enable transparent decision making.
These platforms enable users to monitor forests with satellites, track the drivers of climate change, understand indigenous communities land rights, plan for water scarcity, examine the cross-section of global environmental issues and more.
Explore the platforms below, take advantage of the open data access they provide, and join WRI in working towards a sustainable future.
