Environment & Development Resource Centre (EDRC)


The Stichting Environment & Development Resource Centre (EDRC) was established in Amsterdam in 1991 as a non-profit foundation. Its aim is to contribute to the achievement of global sustainable development that is environmentally sound, socially just and respectful of cultural diversity. EDRC also serves as a catalyst for new initiatives to redress shortcomings in the international environment-development policy-making process. The Centre acts as an independent 'honest-broker', carrying out and commissioning innovative studies, promoting co-operation between the environment and development movements, between researchers and activists, and between NGOs and decision makers.

Climate Action 

The Brussels Dialogue on Climate Diplomacy (BDCD) is an informal network for the exchange of information and promotion of cooperation among European institutions, international organisations, think-tanks and NGOs active in the nexus between climate change and international, national, human and environmental security.

The Transatlantic Responses to 21st Century Environmental Challenges (TREC) project involves 50+ experts from Europe and North America working together to develop a new Transatlantic Environment Forum (TEF). Their belief is that through new ways of learning from each other, of pooling our knowledge and creating new innovative dialogues between environmental experts and policy makers we can increase the effectiveness of our separate - and also common - efforts.

The Global Military Advisory Council on Climate Change (GMACCC) is a global network of serving and retired military officers, and associated institutions, committed to highlighting the potential security implications of a changing climate and advocating action, including by the military, to minimise the risks.
