WWF Annual Review 2019 - 25

OUR GLOBAL WORK

STRONG PROGRESS ON AMAZON PROTECTION
As raging forest fires grabbed global media
headlines, we continued long-term efforts to
secure a network of well-managed protected areas
across the Amazon. A commitment of US$140
million was made by the government of Peru,
WWF and partners to strengthen and expand
Peruvian protected areas covering nearly 17 million
hectares (see more on page 42). The initiative aims
to make the country's protected areas financially
sustainable, protecting both people and nature. We
also helped establish a new protected area covering
over 100,000 hectares in the Colombian Amazon.

HELPING BUSINESS MEET DEFORESTATION-FREE
COMMITMENTS
WWF was an instrumental partner in developing
and launching the Accountability Framework,
the first and only tool of its kind that instils
accountability in companies to meet their
deforestation-free commitments. It provides a clear
roadmap to eliminating deforestation and habitat
conversion from supply chains, together with
much-needed clarity on how to convert pledges
into action. WWF and other NGOs worked with
stakeholders to create these robust new guidelines,
which also provide critical support to governments
developing and implementing deforestation
targets. In another step forward on tackling
deforestation, our policy advocacy paid off when
the EU issued proposals to address Europe's
impact on the world's forests.

PRISTINE FORESTS SAFEGUARDED IN EUROPE
Long-running efforts by WWF and partners have
helped safeguard two key European forests. A new
protected reserve has been established in Russia's
Arkhangelsk region, protecting 300,000 hectares
of one of the world's last large expanses of pristine
forest. Meanwhile, Bulgaria's courts overturned
efforts to open up almost half of Pirin National
Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site
containing centuries-old pine forests,
to logging and potential new

A WWF-backed initiative
aims to give the Peruvian
Amazon effective
long-term protection.
