WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. To achieve this mission, WWF seeks to involve and respect local communities’ cultural and economic needs in the planning and execution of its field programmes and conservation strategies.
WWF has implemented a number of approaches that benefit local livelihoods through sustainable use of natural resources. These approaches include Ecotourism, Community Fisheries, Sustainable Rattan Harvest and Production as well as sustainable collection of other Non-timber Forest Products like resin or honey.
