Living Indus


Efforts by local communities and civil society groups to protect and restore Pakistan’s Indus Basin, which has been rapidly degrading, are gaining momentum through the Government of Pakistan’s Living Indus initiative.

Boosting biodiversity, climate mitigation and community resilience through nature-based solutions.

The initiative in numbers
1,350,000 Hectares restored
25,000,000 Hectares to be restored by 2030
11,000,000,000 USD in funding needed

“Pakistan’s climate induced disasters in recent years have been heart-breaking, causing destruction on a scale that no nation can, or should have to, accept. It is therefore important to recognize and support projects like the Living Indus initiative for the hope and resilience it can offer Pakistan and the region.”
Inger Andersen, Executive Director of UN Environment Programme
