WWF World Wide Fund for Nature Hungary Foundation (HU)

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is an international non-governmental science based organization working on issues regarding the conservation, research and restoration of the environment. It is the world's largest independent conservation organization with over 5 million supporters worldwide, working in more than 100 countries on 6 continents, supporting around 1,300 conservation and environmental projects.
Our mission is to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature. We're striving to safeguard the natural world, helping people live more sustainably and take action against climate change. We spend a lot of time working with communities, with the governmental and business sectors to find solutions so people and nature can thrive.
In Hungary our conservation efforts focuses on freshwater; forests; and climate change and energy. Regarding the latter, we worked on the development of the National Energy Strategy and the National Renewable Energy Action Plan, and so do on the review of the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan. These plans outline Hungary’s long term energy future, therefore influencing them in order to put more emphasis on clean energy sources are crucial part of our work. Apart from the advocacy work, we work close together with companies, authorities and local communities to reduce their emissions, raise their renewable energy usage and help them shift to a low carbon, sustainable economy. Besides, we also take part in international high conservation value projects like a climate change adaptation programme in the Danube Delta.
