Challenge

The communities in which this programme is implemented and where WWF-Pakistan is planning to expand it further, are the ones that are directly suffering from the the impacts of climate change and environmnet degradation. These communities are also not too strong economically and thus need to be provided with alternatives resources to ensure that they switch to sustainable resources for their financial needs. The key issue is to strike a balance between these two sides.

Solution

The project will educate the younger generation the need for them to take up ownership of conservation activities in their area and to switch their life style towards sustainable alternatives. In addition to this, it will inculcate the desire to be part of the solution instead of the problem by not just waiting for the solution for their local problems to come from external resources but to innovate and come up with their own set of answers.

Long-Term Impact

Potential long term solutions include; increase in both domestic and foreign tourism, economic growth, development of local sustainable solutions.
