The MPO believes that a healthy environment is necessary for the well-being of society, people and businesses, and that it is a critical component of social development and economic growth. One of the main challenges for society today is to manage the competing human demands on land, water, soil and vegetation without undermining crucial ecosystem functions. This raises the need for a sustained effort on the part of policy makers and their constituents to rethink and redefine traditional measures of economic growth, wellbeing, equity and sustainability.
The Focus of our Work
As such, much of our work is focused on building partnerships with the aim to promote public policy measures that are meaningful, creative, and provide real solutions to environmental challenges while recognizing the importance of social and economic development, and in many places where we work in contributing to the poverty reduction. Through a combination of these strategic partnerships, joint projects and advocacy efforts, the MPO mobilizes resources, informs conservation strategies and activities, and influences development institutions and governments and their respective policies, practices and investments in support of WWF’ mission.
