The GKP is committed to sharing information, experiences and resources to promote knowledge and information as tools of sustainable, equitable development through information and communication technologies (ICT).
Access to information and knowledge is essential if the disadvantaged, the marginalised, and the poor are to improve their lives and the lives of their children. GKP Partners believe that given the opportunities to access and use ICT, people can improve their economic well-being and empower themselves and their communities to participate in and be responsible for their own development. Mutual prosperity gained through effective use of information and knowledge would contribute to a more stable and equitable world.Contact:

Clean Lakes, Inc.
Clean Lakes, Inc. is a USA-based International Business with office in Kampala, Uganda.

Our Corporate Mission is to provide environmental services and technologies for the restoration, maintenance and protection of the world's waterways (aquatic ecosystems) on all frontiers through research and development, innovative engineering and design, expert consultation, and the implementation of comprehensive management programs.
Clean Lakes Inc. provides environmental services for the restoration and maintenance of aquatic ecosystems.
Our globe lakes, waterways, and wetlands are recognized as critical resources. The world relies on the supply of clean water to support new industry, improve the quality of life for the populations, limit disease, generate power, and to produce food sources. Water quality is a primary requirement of society. Adequate supplies of clean water are required to support our population's needs for potable water. Surface waters are utilized extensively for commerce, transportation, fisheries resources, recreation, flood control, and aesthetics. As populations expand and further develop watersheds, there can be dramatic impacts on water quality that require careful analysis, management, and remediation. In addition, many exotic aquatic plant species introduced from other parts of the world cause major ecological damage to aquatic systems and directly impact the use of surface waters for these purposes. The potential for deterioration of water quality and the concerns of the various user groups have created an extensive market for the management and maintenance of waterways worldwide.
The Company is well positioned to support this need for waterway management services through both proprietary technologies and equipment, and a well developed service capability.

IRM is a non-profit organization (NPO), Private Voluntary Organization" under U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code, based in Washington, DC.
Innovative Resources Management, Inc. is committed to meeting the complex challenges of sustainable development with proven solutions that facilitate the building of effective teams and coalitions, promote effective natural resources management and economic development, and strengthen technical and institutional capacity of all stakeholders.
Recognizing that sustainable development starts with forging sustainable relationships among partners, IRM is working worldwide to:
Complexity of the Challenge
The challenge of achieving sustainable development is daunting. Global desertification , accelerated degradation of biologically diverse tropical forests, and related environmental crises provide both the justification and framework for promoting sustainable development. Over the past two decades, weve learned that pathways to sustainable development require skillfully managed solutions that match the complexity of the problems. Successful teams and multistakeholder coalitions are now recognized as a prerequisite for sustainable development.
An Unprecedented Opportunity
As many countries undergo the complex process of democratization and transition to a decentralized market economy, a window of opportunity has opened for developing multistakeholder collaborations and public-private partnerships. In fact, the opportunity to build coalitions and facilitate innovation across sectors and geo-political boundaries has never been greater.
IRM's Comparative Advantage
IRM stands at the forefront in matching sustainable development problems with proven strategies, methods, and tools for achieving broad-based, equitable solutions bridging local, national, and international actors. A not-for-profit corporation created in 1997, IRM builds largely on the success of the PVO-NGO Natural Resources Management Support (NRMS) Project in sub-Saharan-Africa.
A proven leader in NGO and civil society capacity-building, IRM staff have worked for the past 10 years to strengthen NGO technical and institutional capacities in strategic planning, organizational development, participatory rural appraisal, buffer zone management, farmer participatory research, and integrated land-use planning and management.
The Challenges Ahead
IRM is well positioned to forge partnerships at regional and national levels that are critical to the future of sustainable development. In the coming years, IRM will focus primarily on catalyzing multistakeholder coalitions and developing innovative tools that help communities identify equitable development options in decentralized and highly structured governance environments. Along the way, we hope to find partners and sponsors who not only share our vision, but are prepared to collaborate in moving the sustainable development agenda into the 21st century.
