Introduction to WWF and to the Asia Pacific Growth Strategy:

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the world’s largest and most experienced independent conservation organizations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in more than 100 countries. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world’s biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

The Asia Pacific Growth Strategy (APGS) started in 2008 with the aims of building financially stronger offices in the Asia Pacific and tapping into the economic growth in the region. APGS’s long-term vision is for WWF offices in Asia Pacific to contribute to the Network’s total income at least to GDP equivalent; i.e 26 percent.  The last eight years have seen it develop to be an effective, solid strategy for building strong offices across Asia-Pacific; developing leadership, capacity in fundraising, self-generated income and a way of working together to be the WWF that we need to be if we are to achieve our urgent conservation objectives. WWF offices in Asia Pacific have doubled the level of funding from priority segments through investments in growth, collaboration, and capacity building, and the main driver behind this achievement is the Asia Pacific Growth Strategy. 

WWF operates in the following countries in Asia Pacific:

Australia, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Thailand, Vietnam, United Arab Emirates (Emirates Wildlife Society/WWF-UAE is within the scope of the WWF APGS although not geographically part of the Asia Pacific region).
