The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is the world’s largest independent conservation organisation, with over 6 million supporters and a global network active in over 100 countries. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world’s biodiversity, ensuring the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.
WWF-Norway is involved in several global processes on the environment, including on climate change, biodiversity, plastic pollution, forest management and ocean governance. Global rules and regulations can play a key role in the global societies’ response to the environmental crisis the planet is facing, however, many international processes have encountered challenges, stalled or delivered results too weak or vague to deliver the concrete change needed.
WWF-Norway has many years of expertise in working on international processes on the environment and are now seeking to improve this capacity further and bring all relevant staff along on a more strategic approach to solving the world’s pressing environmental challenges through international law and diplomacy.
