Together we must choose a better future, now
A philanthropic partnership with WWF can help. We hope to inspire you with ways of engaging that will truly help secure a nature-positive world by 2030.
The pace of change in the past 60 years has been extraordinary.
The world’s human population has multiplied from 3 billion in 1960 to 7.8 billion in 2020; the global economy has expanded four-fold; and over 1 billion people have been lifted out of extreme poverty. But human advancements have come at a devastating cost to nature.
This decade must be the turning point where we recognize the value of nature, place it on the path to recovery and transform our world to one where people, economies and nature thrive.
We are at the beginning of a critically important decade of action for nature - a period of ambitious, targeted actions that, together, will help to create a sustainable future for nature and people.
In this decade we need to halt and reverse nature loss measured from a baseline of 2020, by increasing the health, abundance, diversity and resilience of species, populations and ecosystems so that by 2030 nature is visibly and measurably on the path of recovery.
We know there are clear grounds for hope if we act now. There is momentum and people are expecting changes. In Kunming and at COP 26 in Glasgow, WWF made it clear that we need to come together and speed up our actions rapidly to cut emissions and help nature and people to adapt. But nothing will happen until we make it happen - actions must start now.
And with over 3000 live projects working in countries all over the world, WWF's actions have already started. We work targeting the species, places and issues that need critical attention, and where the effects of our work can have the greatest impact.
Here are some examples of how we are accelerating impact towards a nature-positive planet:
