RISD's Core Values

Equity and Justice:

RISD ensures equal opportunities for all, irrespective of age, gender, social class or location. RISD recognizes the importance of economic justice to address inequality, create opportunity, and overcome poverty and hunger.

Partnership and Networking:

The success of RISD’s work is effective partnership building and networking for establishing wider alliances at different levels: national, regional and international.

Grassroots Knowledge and Participation:

RISD highly values grassroots knowledge as the best way to ensure sustainability. The secret behind the success of RISD’s work is its participatory tools that enable the grassroots, including women and other vulnerable groups, to engage in national policy making by expressing and understanding their needs and rights, in particular those related to land as their main resource livelihood.
