Environmental Protection and Restoration

Many programs and projects are being launched to protect and restore the natural environment.  Many are government sponsored, but many more are initiated by private and non-profit organizations led by passionate people who may lack formal project management education or knowledge.  Nevertheless, many are achieving great things.  This section of the library is intended to provide information about some of those organizations, projects and programs - as examples of what others can also do and to identify initiatives that might benefit from professional project management support.
