Accelerating Cross-Sector Partnerships
Cross-sector collaboration to fight illegal wildlife trafficking
The illegal trade in wildlife is one of the largest black markets in the world. Reducing Opportunities for Unlawful Transport of Endangered Species (ROUTES) is an innovative and transformational partnership that brings together international conservation organizations, donors and government, and the transportation and logistics industry for a multi-year collaborative program to disrupt wildlife trafficking by reducing the use of legal transportation supply chains.
Partnering around honey bees in production agriculture
Together with the Keystone Center, we helped form the Honey Bee Health Coalition to bring together beekeepers, growers, agriculture companies, conservationists, and scientists to focus on improving honey bee health in and around production agriculture.
Increasing understanding between agricultural stakeholders to improve honey bee health
With over $15 billion in American agriculture reliant on pollination, honey bee health and agriculture are intrinsically linked. But honey bees face increasing pressure. Their decline is linked to a variety of factors, including how beekeeping and crop production, and thus farmers and beekeepers, impact each other. An incubated project of the Honey Bee Health Coalition, The Bee Understanding Project intends to increase understanding between agricultural stakeholders to develop better solutions around improving honey bee health.
Workshops with students to develop social innovations around food security
Young people will come of age in a world that requires new and innovative solutions to solve increasingly complex global challenges. This is especially true of developing a sustainable food supply. To best address this systemic challenge, we've partnered with Net Impact and their student leaders to develop groundbreaking, sustainable solutions.
Making the business case for healthy communities
In partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, CollaborateUp is facilitating co-design forums in communities across the nation. Engaging local businesses and other key community stakeholders to discuss health, education, and economic outcomes, we strive to encourage increased business involvement in building healthy communities.
On behalf of our clients, we make strategic introductions, translate the needs of businesses to NGOs and vice-versa, and structure outcome-oriented partnerships that amplify impact and get results faster at lower cost.
