A global team across the WWF network of offices works to link development and conservation issues and to promote sustainable development solutions both within WWF and with our partners.
About the SD4C Team
Growing out of earlier initiatives on poverty, equity, indigenous peoples, and regional network experiences, the Social Development for Conservation (SD4C) team was established in 2009 to address social and development dimensions in conservation and to build our capacity as a network to effectively and pro-actively engage in these processes.
The cross-cutting scope of the SD4C team, and its global reach, are based on strong collaboration between colleagues working in various capacities from offices across the WWF Network. An engagement at multiple levels (national, regional, global), and in all regions, enhances local-to-global-to-local linkages and allows the team to provide critical support, tools and services for WWF to become an effective player and partner in establishing more equitable and greener development pathways.
