ECSP Joins PLACE IQC for Natural Resource Management

Collaboration Draws on Program's Expertise

Feb 01, 2007

The Environmental Change and Security Program (ECSP) is a member of a diverse consortium that has been chosen to compete for projects under the Prosperity, Livelihoods, and Conserving Ecosystems Indefinite Quantity Contract (PLACE IQC).

Led by Burlington, Vermont-based ARD, Inc., the consortium pools the resources and expertise of 10 partners in the areas of natural resource management. The PLACE IQC is a flagship funding mechanism for the U.S. Agency for International Development's Bureau of Economic Growth, Agriculture, and Trade.

The Wilson Center's ECSP will be called on for its expertise in cross-sectoral analysis (e.g., population, environment, and security linkages) and conflict management and mitigation. Other partners include organizations and institutions such as Conservation International, World Resources Institute, and Virginia Tech University.
