In October 2012, WWF began a four-year project to conserve snow leopard habitat, promote water security, and help communities prepare for climate change impacts in Central Asia. The USAID-funded, $4.7-million Conservation and Adaptation in Asia’s High Mountain Landscapes and Communities project will conduct field activities in and build alliances among six of the snow leopard’s 12 range countries: Bhutan, India, Nepal, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, and Pakistan. The project will run through September 30, 2016.
Through the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), WWF works with global leaders in sustainable water management to promote the use of fresh water in a way that is socially, economically, and environmentally beneficial.
EFN, with generous funding from The UPS Foundation, has launched a special grant opportunity focused on supporting communities in regaining ecological integrity and enhancing human wellbeing in deforested or degraded forest landscapes through forest restoration.
