Greenhouse gas emissions are causing adverse effects on land and in oceans. The mis-management of marine resources has led to a global fisheries crisis and a severe loss of biodiversity, and poaching threatens to cause the extinction of wildlife.
In the Environment Programme, we hope for more socially and environmentally sustainable societies, for the protection of endangered species and for the transformation of how oceans are perceived and exploited. Our grant-making focuses on three main areas: safeguarding a clean climate future for our children; cleaning up our oceans; and eliminating the cruel and illegal trade in endangered wildlife.
