What WWF is Doing?

In order to achieve WWF's vision on securing water for people and nature in our priority river basins, WWF-Pakistan believes in three pillars that can make a demonstrable difference:
  • Promoting water stewardship to reduce water footprint impacts on Indus River basin while meeting the needs for business and agriculture development;
  • Promoting responsible water infrastructure and securing sustainable flows, to safeguard hydrological regimes that freshwater flora and fauna rely on, while meeting water demands for basic needs, social purposes and economic development;
  • Protecting representative freshwater habitats, and where possible, to establish freshwater conservation network in the Indus Basin, to secure freshwater dependant flora and fauna.
