Maliasili Initiatives works with partner organizations in East Africa, a range of global collaborators, and like-minded philanthropic investors to build leading models of sustainable natural resource management at community, landscape and national level that are based on secure local rights over land and resources for local communities and landholders.
Maliasili Initiatives works primarily through established, skilled and committed local partner organizations that are on the cutting edge of advancing conservation, rural development, and social justice. We work to scale up innovative and promising approaches and models in select key landscapes and ecosystems. We do this by building the capacity of our local partners in a demand-driven way to expand, deepen, and sustain their work. All of Maliasili Initiatives’ work revolves around ‘investing in people for nature’.
