Partnership to build tools that improve natural and social systems

biodiversity-forest-leavesArizona State University's Center for Biodiversity Outcomes, a unit of the ASU Wrigley Institute, recently formalized a partnership with nonprofit The Earth Genome. The partnership is envisioned as an opportunity to promote the organizations' shared goals of developing the solutions needed to conserve and sustainably manage life on earth. The center will connect its affiliated faculty with The Earth Genome to build information systems and tools that will enable the world’s governments, multi-laterals, non-governmental organizations, corporations and investors to incorporate the environment into their decision-making and long-term cost calculations.  In doing so, improved outcomes for both society and natural systems are expected.
