Nature has many faces in Asia Pacific.

Asia Pacific is home to over 4.3 billion people (60 percent of the global population), nurtures some of the oldest cultures on the planet, and offers a wealth of diverse landscapes and seascapes—from the heights of the Himalayas to the depths of the Pacific Ocean. However, a warming climate, a growing population and our need for natural resources are threatening nature as never before.

Where We Work

As the fastest growing region in the world, Asia Pacific includes more than half of the world’s 7 billion people, seven of its 10 largest cities and five of its largest economies. As the region’s economies expand, increased urbanization, consumption and a rising demand for food, water, housing and energy are placing enormous pressure on the region’s unique natural assets.
