  • Wetlands International

    Wetlands International’s mission is “to sustain and restore wetlands, their resources and biodiversity for future generations”. In order to fullfil our mission, we have adopted the following four long-term strategic global goals: 

    • Global Goal 1: Stakeholders and decision makers are well-informed about the status and trends of wetlands, their biodiversity and priorities for action
    • Global Goal 2: The functions and values of wetlands are recognised and integrated into sustainable development 
    • Global Goal 3: Conservation and sustainable use of wetlands is achieved through integrated water resource management and coastal zone management
    • Global Goal 4: Large scale, strategic initiatives result in improved conservation status of species, habitats and ecological networks

  • World Wide Fund for Nature

    WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of our planet's natural environment, and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. Given limited resources, restricted funds and the fact that we're running out of time, WWF is focusing most of its current efforts on 14 global initiatives. To achieve this, we are working with our many partners to:  Save biodiversity, and Reduce humanity’s impact on natural habitats. We are strategically focusing on conserving critical places and critical species that are particularly important for their habitat or for people.
