LAHORE : The Secretary Emergency Services Department and the CEO World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Pakistan) signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate to handle environmental emergencies on Saturday.

Addressing the ceremony, the ESD Secretary emphasised the collaboration's goal to establish model communities in partnership with the WWF-Pakistan to promote a cleaner and greener Pakistan.

He expressed his intention to replicate the successful community models throughout Punjab, furthering the mission of environmental sustainability. The partnership between the ESD and WWF-Pakistan would also help in bringing behavioral change in communities, focusing on environmental protection, pollution reduction, water conservation, and responding to environmental emergencies. The emergencies data would also be helpful in evidence-based decision making.
