Our three practices are Markets, Finance and Governance.
Based on these goals and practices, we are implementing following projects.
The integrity of the world’s [most important] forests, including their benefits to human well-being, is enhanced and maintained
With Pakistan’s forests on a steady decline in the last three decades, there is a pressing need for their protection. Conserving forests of Pakistan is one of the programmatic pillars of WWF-Pakistan. Our long term goal is to conserve and maintain critical forest ecosystems of Pakistan.

Climate and Energy
A global shift towards a low carbon & climate resilient future is achieved
Over the past two decades, climate change has emerged as a global threat, transcending political boundaries. Although a low contributor of greenhouse emissions, Pakistan faces significant threat due to rising global temperature. Keeping this in mind, WWF-Pakistan’s climate change adaptation programme is one of its many initiatives based on this programmatic pillar. Our aim is to reduce the consequences of climate change on ecosystem and biodiversity in Pakistan and to promote sustainable development in the country.

The world’s [most iconic] and endangered species are secured and recovering in the wild
One of WWF-Pakistan’s programmatic pillars is to protect wildlife, which it carries out by conserving minimum viable populations of selected indigenous, endemic and/or keystone genomes and species. Our work focuses on the conservation of wildlife species of special concern, scientifically and holistically, through promoting sustainable livelihoods, awareness and capacity building.
