Over the last twenty years, the public sector has contributed CHF 2 billion (about € 1.5 billion) to WWF's conservation priorities worldwide. Since 1990, growth in funding from the public sector has grown 7.5% on average per year.
Public financing makes about 19% of WWF's total income; in 2016, it reached €132 million. Though co-financing from the public sector allows us to achieve big impacts, support from individual donors still remains our most important source of financing.
Public Sector Partnerships contribute to 18.7% of global funds within WWF.
WWF maintains 34 partnerships with bilateral and multilateral institutions. About one hundred employees across the globe service these partnerships, taking care of everything from maintaining strong dialogs, to programme planning, monitoring, and reporting.
