TNRC Our Consortium

Our Consortium

The TNRC Leader Award was implemented by a consortium of leading organizations in anti-corruption, natural resource management, and conservation: World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre at the Chr. Michelsen Institute, the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) at George Mason University, and TRAFFIC.

WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by more than one million members in the United States and close to five million globally. WWF's unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre works to reduce the harmful impact of corruption on society, and shares research and evidence to help international development actors get sustainable results. Together with global research networks and practitioners, U4 pursues emerging topics and advances the anti-corruption field. U4 is a permanent centre at the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI) in Norway.
The Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) is the first center in the United States devoted to understanding the links among terrorism, transnational crime and corruption, and to teach, research, train and help formulate policy on these critical issues. TraCCC is a research center within the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University.
TRAFFIC is a leading non-governmental organisation working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. TRAFFIC works around the world carrying out research and analysis to compile evidence to catalyse action by governments, businesses and individuals, in collaboration with a wide range of partners, to help ensure that wildlife trade is not a threat to the conservation of nature.
Funding for the TNRC project was provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3) Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB). The FAB office is the Agency lead on biodiversity and forest issues, and provides guidance, training, and direct technical assistance to USAID colleagues engaged in developing, managing and monitoring conservation programs.
