Progressio, formerly known as The Catholic Institute for International Relations (CIIR), is an international development charity working for justice and the eradication of poverty. Progressio?s core values are:
? to eradicate poverty and exclusion through challenging unjust political, social and economic structures locally and globally;
? the full and active participation of the poorest, most excluded groups in decision-making which works to reduce vulnerabilities stemming from conflict, war and environmental degradation;
? an equitable distribution of resources and power between men and women and between communities and nations;
? basic rights, cultural diversity and multi-cultural understanding.


Progressio carries out an interesting advocacy work on sustainable environment, which consists in promoting the rational use and management of natural resources for the benefit of future generations. This includes promoting sustainable cultivation practices and resource management techniques, while improving productivity, income and living conditions in small farming communities.
