The WWF is run at a local level by the following offices...

To tackle these new challenges WWF in Africa came up with the Africa Vision 2020 whose aim is “To be an influential and respected conservation organization in Africa that models sustainable relationships between humans and nature”. The aim is to harness the networks power in mobilizing people, knowledge, financing, and partnerships to achieve this vision.
The achievement of the vision for WWF in Africa 2020 will be supported by the following five strategic pillars.
Effective and Impact Driven Conservation
WWF in Africa aims to be the agenda setter on three thematic areas that are of growing importance in Africa namely: conservation and sustainable development, green growth, and sustainable and renewable energy. Centres of excellence on these three themes will be established and will serve stakeholders on the continent, the WWF network and the broader international community.
