Recharge Pakistan

The Recharge Pakistan project aims to enhance Pakistan's climate resilience and water security by implementing cost-effective ecosystem-based adaptation strategies, such as wetlands restoration, floodplain management, and hill-torrent conservation to increase water storage and recharge. Through climate-adapted and community-based natural resource management and livelihoods, the project seeks to bring about a paradigm shift in scaling up this approach. By fostering an unprecedented collaboration between multiple government entities and WWF Pakistan, the project strives to implement nature-based solutions for vital climate change adaptation in Pakistan. This initiative will safeguard and improve the well-being and resilience of local communities.
