Top Outcomes

At WRI, we measure our impact by the positive actions, informed by our work, that governments, companies, and communities take to improve people’s lives and the environment. Each year our staff and leadership select 10 Top Outcomes—the most significant changes that can be attributed to WRI’s research and influence.

WRI’s international offices play an increasingly important role, this year making a significant contribution to more than half of our Top Outcomes.
