Ball In Monaco - Albert II


I decided to set up a Foundation whose purpose is to protect the environment and to encourage sustainable development (...). By definition, this is a common global challenge that requires urgent and concrete action in response to three major environmental issues:
climate change, biodiversity and water.

Prince Albert II of Monaco

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation promotes sustainable and equitable management of natural resources and places the individual at the centre of its projects. Its commited international team collaborates with networks of researchers and companies in order to support innovative and ethical solutions in three main areas: climate change, biodiversity and water. The Foundation concentrates its efforts in priority geographical zones : the polar zones (Arctic and Antarctica), the Mediterranean region, Africa and Asia. The tropical rainforests house at least 75% of the world’s biodiversity. The Foundation and the association MC2D have decided, for 2010 - the Year of Biodiversity - to focus on the essential protection of these ecosystems. One of the concrete catalysts for change resides in the production, marketing and utilisation of certified wood under the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label.

H.E. Bernard Fautrier Vice-President,
CEO of the Foundation, explains :

"The effects of global warming, pollution, the extinction of species and the threats to the indigenous people are considerable, especially in the polar regions. On the other hand, the least developed countries, particularly exposed to major environmental issues, are affected by desertification, water scarcity and deforestation. The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation devotes part of its efforts to these countries not only to find a solution to these scourges, but also to contribute towards their action in support of sustainable development."

"In Singapore we are surrounded by countries who need immediate help.
This is why His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco decided to establish the 8th Branch of His Foundation in Singapore.
Being closer to these countries we understand their urgent needs and we are able to follow projects.

I am personally involved in Timor Leste where we are educating the population by providing specialists to teach them how they can bring clean water to villages, to understand that they have to work with us for reforestation, plantations, construstion of fish ponds ...
In Timor Leste, The Foundation Prince Albert II of Monaco has also built two maternity clinics."
