WWF-India undertakes diverse environmental conservation activities – ranging from field projects on biodiversity, climate change, education, policy studies to advocacy to conserve the human-environment equilibrium. In doing so, it seeks the support of six cross-cutting enablers:
Centre for Environmental Law (CEL): Established in 1993, CEL provides environmental legal services to WWF-India. CEL also focuses on policy analysis, campaigning and legal interventions on environmental issues. CEL also serves as a resource centre for teaching environmental law and research in the national, regional and international context.

Corporate Partnerships: WWF believes that corporates can play an important role towards the cause of conservation. We work closely with corporates including – multinational corporations, public sector units, financial institutions and small- to medium-sized businesses to develop partnerships which intersect with WWF’s philosophy and conservation priorities.

Environment Education (EE): WWF-India’s Environment Education programme was started in 1969, with the aim to strengthen on a long-term basis, both human and institutional capacity in nature conservation and environmental protection.

Indira Gandhi Conservation Monitoring Centre (IGCMC): The Indira Gandhi Conservation Monitoring Centre was established in 1994 as a programme area within WWF-India with support from the Ministry and Environment and Forests (MoEF). IGCMC, set up as a national facility, supports biodiversity and natural resource conservation in India through the collection, management, and accessibility of relevant data and knowledge. For this purpose, IGCMC uses geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing techniques to procure data to facilitate WWF-India’s work in the field of conservation.

Sustainable Livelihoods and Governance (SL&G): This programme adopts a holistic approach to conservation which enables people and communities to analyse, decide and act to achieve fair and sustainable management and use of natural resources, and improved individual and community wellbeing.

TRAFFIC: TRAFFIC works closely with the national and the state governments and various agencies to help study, monitor and influence action to curb illegal wildlife trade as well as bring wildlife trade within sustainable levels.
