How We Work!
We are an independent, Community Based Organization governed as a trust created under SI 7 of the Environmental Management Act – Chapter 20:27 Section 1.1.3 and Chapter 4 Declaration of Environmental Rights Section 73 to manage wetlands and their biodiversity as agreed by Global conventions like Iran’s 1972 Ramsar Convention and others which mitigates climate change issues against greenhouse effect (Montreal protocol).
The overall objective of the Trust is to “contribute to the unceasing debate on environmental good practices against geophysical infrastructural development”, by creating awareness and lobby strategies which cement the symbiosis between human cultural and religious practices that bind people to the environment and means of sustainable public resource allocation management as governed by a duality in laws and statutes in the country from community level.
