For several years, the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) has been educating public and private organizations about restorative development in order to grow a partnership that understands and is vested in building a systems model of restorative development. In 2019, the Restorative Development Partnership emerged from those efforts.
Statement of purpose: The Restorative Development Partnership (RDP) includes public, private, and nonprofit organizations committed to advancing a replicable systems model of restorative development that equitably optimizes environmental, social, and economic outcomes for future redevelopment.
