We are committed to supporting sustainable livelihoods in rural communities and maintaining their cultural, social and natural environment.


We are using resources as if we had two planets, not one.

There can be no 'plan B' because there is no 'planet B.'

What's New?

September 3, 2020

Covid-19 has affected us all and its effects will continue long after the pandemic abates.  For SRDI, our work has slowed dramatically but we remain financially viable and look forward to forging ahead with the BSST Program by planning our approach over the fall and winter to offer our partners and future responsible travelers something concrete to look forward to. You can visit the Travel BSST web portal here.

Our other advisory work continues, on a virtual basis, and for those looking to the future, we are ready to provide our services to help recovery in a sustainable manner.

Contact us with your questions and needs.  Let's work together.
