WWF Annual Review 2017 - 37

PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS

PUBLIC SECTOR PARTNERSHIPS
By influencing the policies and priorities of governments and public
finance institutions, we're supporting nature conservation, the green
economy and sustainable development.

GLOBAL FUND SUPPORTS LAND RESTORATION
Around the world, the way people
use land is having harmful impacts
on biodiversity, food security and
economic productivity. A new fund
which aims to raise US$300 million to
support land restoration got its official
launch this year. The Land Degradation
Neutrality Fund will help improve land
management and rehabilitate some
of the world's 2 billion hectares of
degraded land while protecting vital
ecosystems and empowering
sustainable business. We've been
working closely with the UN Convention
to Combat Desertification, Mirova and
the Global Environment Facility to
develop the fund and some ambitious
projects it may invest in.

AVOIDING DEFORESTATION FOR NATURE,
CLIMATE AND PEOPLE
Giving developing countries incentives
to reduce emissions from deforestation
and invest in sustainable, low-carbon
development is a vital part of
international efforts to combat climate
change. In the Democratic Republic
of Congo, we've been working with the
government, the World Bank and local
communities to put the concept into
practice. Our project in Mai-Ndombe

Province aims to avoid 25 million
tonnes of carbon emissions by supporting
alternatives to deforestation. With
our support, 13 communities are now
managing their own forest areas,
where they're developing projects like
agroforestry, beekeeping and
sustainable logging.

GREENING ASIAN DEVELOPMENT
We've had an increasing impact on
Asian Development Bank's (ADB)
efforts to promote social and economic
development since our strategic
partnership started in in 2001. Our
recent collaborations include making
climate change resilience a key criteria
in ADB's lending and assistance policies
and co-hosting a conference on how to
build infrastructure without harming
local nature. WWF-Nepal has since
encouraged the government of Nepal to
follow the draft guidelines that came out
of the conference in future road designs.
WWF President Yolanda Kakabadse
also spoke at ADB's
50th Annual Meeting,
providing an important
stage for us to be heard
on key issues such as
the implementation
of the UN Sustainable
Development Goals.
