This is how we work
Many WWF Offices, mainly in OECD countries, have strong partnerships with their national public sector agencies and act as the 'Focal Point' for WWF's interaction with them. Some of these partnerships have been in place for over 20 years. Some 'bilateral' Focal Point offices coordinate amongst themselves, shadowing public sector institutions' groupings such as the "Nordic+".
Several offices in the WWF Network lead on relations with our multilateral partners: WWF-European Policy Office for the European Institutions; WWF-US for the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, Global Environment Facility, and the Green Climate Fund; WWF France for the Land Degradation Neutrality Fund, WWF Philippines for the Asian Development Bank; and the Regional Office for Africa for the African Development Bank.
... on the ground
WWF Offices in many countries have increasingly appointed people to lead in their relations with the local, resident offices of our partners. As public funding to WWF offices in these countries has grown, so has the offices' recognition of the need for capacity to manage a good dialogue with public sector partners and to deliver effectively on programs they co-finance.
