The global community faces ever-changing challenges of supporting sustainable development, conserving biodiversity, and adapting to a changing climate. To address these complex challenges, Tetra Tech unites stakeholders from the private and public sectors and civil society to improve natural resource management; conserve biodiversity; and enhance regional, national, and local resiliency.
We support communities to manage and ensure sustainable use of their natural resources while conserving biodiversity for future generations. Tetra Tech works with host country governments, civil society, and the private sector to improve their capacity in all areas of natural resources conservation and climate resilience. Our integrated approach strengthens our partners’ abilities to inventory, analyze, and manage natural resources in a variety of settings.
Tetra Tech offers proven models for biodiversity conservation and income generation that it implements with flexibility and adapts best practices and innovations to the needs of each community. Our integrative approach considers the natural, economic, and governance factors that must be addressed at the local, national, and regional levels. We achieve measurable biodiversity outcomes by working with local partners to reduce threats and improve local livelihoods.
Tetra Tech supports people, communities, governments, and the private sector in more than 100 developing and emerging economies worldwide to become more climate resilient. We use integrated analysis to support evidence-based decision making in agricultural production, governance, and infrastructure development. We work with our partners to conduct climate vulnerability assessments, develop models for different climatic scenarios, run options analyses, and implement actionable frameworks for climate resilient development at all levels.
Tetra Tech is a leader in providing integrated forest management and services related to the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) services. Our work covers the full spectrum of REDD+ implementation, including social and environmental safeguards; sustainable carbon financing and payment for environmental services; multi-sectoral and low emission strategy development; and carbon monitoring, reporting, and verification.
Tetra Tech offers unparalleled experience engaging people, communities, regional organizations, and country governments in the long-term sustainable management of their forest and grassland resources. Our socially inclusive and participatory approaches to natural resources management builds capacity within the government and civil society to become innovators in the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, while balancing conservation goals with economic growth and diversified use priorities.
As vulnerable coastal populations compete with international fisheries fleets for increasingly scarce marine resources, Tetra Tech is providing policy and capacity support in conjunction with technology that empowers local communities to monitor and enforce coastal activities. Tetra Tech’s scientists and governance experts ensure that rigorous ecological assessments are linked to a deep socio-economic understanding of governance contexts to develop and implement management plans.
Biodiversity loss caused by illegal international trade in wildlife, wildlife parts, and vegetative species is a major threat to conservation goals. Tetra Tech focuses on reducing the trafficking of illegal wildlife including elephants, pangolins, rhinoceros, sharks, chimpanzees, gorillas, and numerous fauna and flora. We are working with partners throughout Africa and Asia to employ demand reduction, coordination, law enforcement, and governance solutions to address the illegal wildlife trade, linking these activities to sustainable management of biodiversity in the wild.
