The NBI Global Resource Centre Governance 

NBI Structure

The NBI Project Steering Committee oversees progress made by the NBI Global Resource Centre. Committee members include high-level representatives from the four leading organizations. They meet twice per year to assess the impacts of the project and provide strategic advice, guidance, and recommendations.  

The Technical Advisory Committee consists of technical experts on simulation, systems thinking, system dynamics modelling, spatial analysis, project finance, and nature-based infrastructure. They meet twice per year to provide technical reviews and substantive guidance for NBI assessments. 

IISD operates as the Executing Agency for the NBI Global Resource Centre and is therefore responsible for delivering the project’s objectives. IISD provides information services and technical expertise, facilitates dialogues, consults on individual requests, commissions and delivers research, and communicates the project’s activities. 

The NBI Global Resource Centre forms the Project Management Unit, which is responsible for the centralized and coordinated management of all projects.
