About Company

WRI is a trusted partner for change. Using research-based approaches, we work globally and in focus countries to meet people’s essential needs; to protect and restore nature; and to stabilize the climate and build more resilient communities. We aim to fundamentally transform the way the world produces food, uses energy and designs its cities to create a better future for all. We work across several topics affecting people, nature and the climate:

Our Global Reach

WRI has nearly 1,800 staff located around the world. In addition to global initiatives and a coordinated regional presence in Africa and Europe, we prioritize work in 12 focus countries: Brazil, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and the United States.

To support WRI Africa’s growing presence in the region, we have registered to open a new office in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Kenya is one of the most important countries in the region, home to major UN and mulitialteral organizations, and an important regional transportation, media and communications hub.

Nairobi is also home to WRI Vice President and Regional Director Wanjira Mathai and a growing number of newly hired senior managers, including a recently hired global governance director and a WRI Africa lead for Research, Data and Innovation (RDI). WRI Africa’s regional hub, including oversight of operations and human resources, will continue to be in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
