Our Mission
CAMP Alatoo’s mission highlights two complementary and intrinsically linked goals: improving the livelihoods of Central Asian communities based on integrated natural resource management, and developing, adapting, and implementing our tools with global and local experience.

Our Core Values

We develop solutions.

We adapt to change.

  • We work closely with local experts so that our activities are transparent, efficient, and focused on the local context.

We implement with global and local experience.
