WWF-CFS PARTNERSHIP

The WWF-Carlos Slim Foundation Partnership works in six high priority regions (Mexican Mesoamerican Reef, Chihuahua Desert, Gulf of California, Monarch Butterflies, the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas) with local, national and international partners, combining efforts and financial and human resources for sustainable development and preservation of biodiversity. Furthermore, the partnership works hand in hand with federal and state government agencies to ensure that investments actually contribute to achieving national and regional goals.

At the national level, the partnership works on the issue of climate change.
