We are ASDF
Americas Sustainable Development Foundation (ASDF) is an independent not-for-profit advisory foundation that connects people with innovative ideas in order to effectively address sustainable development challenges across the Americas.
What is sustainable development?
Sustainable Development is development that considers the needs of communities now without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (Brundtland Report).
The concept of Sustainable Development and related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offers a suitable framework in which to holistically analyze and address global challenges as they relate to our societies, economy and the environment. Sustainability has become an indispensable consideration for both governments and the private sector, when it comes to creating healthy growth.
What we do
Our team of highly dedicated professionals share a vision of a world where human beings thrive in harmony with the environment. To achieve this, we bring about innovation by creating and supporting practical solutions for addressing air, water, energy, food, and material management challenges. We do this through research, education and capacity building efforts, as well as evaluating and supporting the implementation of practical initiatives.
How we do it
We believe in creating strong alliances with like-minded partners in order to ensure that our projects achieve maximum impact. As a not-for-profit organization, we mainly depend on self-sustaining revenues resulting from international competitive grants, independent advisory services, education programs, and research publications. We do this in collaboration with our partners and extended network of scientists and experts.
