Resource Watch is an open, freely accessible, online global data system that unites technology, transparency, and human networks to drive sustainable management of the planet’s resources.

Resource Watch combines advanced monitoring systems, data (historic, near-real-time, and projections), complementary imagery and maps, cloud computing, mobile technology, and a networked world to create never-before-possible transparency on what is happening to the world’s resources―both faraway and right at home.

This resulting radical transparency on climate change, energy, food, water, cities, ecosystems and other critical issues will empower civil society, NGOs, the media, and progressive public and private sector leaders to take action to conserve, restore, and sustainably manage resources at a pace that matches the modern world.
