Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) is the largest privately financed international conservation organisation in the world, with national affiliates in more than 30 countries, offices in over 70 countries and a global membership of more than five million. WWF?s mission is the conservation of nature so that people can live in harmony with nature. WWF the Netherlands is the largest conservation organisation in the Netherlands with 925.000 private members. WWF has an extensive collaborative programme with private sector parties and intensive policy dialogue with government and policy makers. The organisation executes over 60 projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe.


WWF Netherlands launched in 2007 the Linking Futures Programme. The main goal of this programme is to support livelihoods by improving access to natural livelihood resources and enhancing their management. The programme is focused on Cameroon, Kenya and Mozambique and seeks to achieve its aims through international policy dialogue and direct collaborative action with local communities, civil society organisations and the private sector. The experiences of the programme are used to mainstream livelihoods improvement and social development issues in the strategic plan of the organisation. An extensive learning and sharing programme is being developed. Information on all projects financed by WWF can be found on www.wnf.nl
