The Corridors Partnership is a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder platform that enables as well as promotes constructive dialogue and collaboration on resource corridor planning and development between the public and private sectors. Founded in 2015, the Partnership was initiated by the Department for International Development (DFID) UK, WWF and the World Bank. Since then, more organisations have come on board and many more have shown interest. Click here to read more on membership to The Corridors Partnership.
