InfoResources - Who we are
InfoResources is operated jointly by three Swiss institutions with ample experience in natural resources and international cooperation:
InfoAgrar is an agricultural information service for development cooperation. As a project of the Swiss College of Agriculture, InfoAgrar uses the broad knowlege of the College's experts in its daily work.
Info Service CDE predominantly documents and disseminates information related to environment and natural resources in international cooperation. Info Service CDE is part of the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) of the Institute of Geography, University of Berne, and draws on the rich knowledge and experience of CDE’s expert staff.
Intercooperation disseminates information in relation to its core competences (natural resources management – forestry and agriculture –, rural economy, local governance and civil society) and activities in the field.
InfoResources is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). In order to ensure a broad perspective and an extensive network of expertise, InfoResources collaborates with the following partners in developing countries:
