Charter of Friends of Indus Forum

We the undersigned conservation activists, intellectuals and passionate persons to nature would like to form a common platform to protect collective natural heritage, biodiversity and natural resources of the province of Sindh. Multiple factors have generated diverse threats to the beautiful work of nature in which species are losing battle.  People depend on biodiversity and natural resources are pushed to extreme poverty and despair. Once lost, human being would not be able to craft a single plant or animal.

The vicious cycle of poverty and destruction of natural resources has been exacerbated in recent years, this trend first need to be halted and then reversed to preserve the ecological importance and biodiversity richness of the Sindh province. The task is gigantic, challenges are enormous, actors are diverse and threats coming from nature, human beings and those stretch from local to national and international. But journey needs to be started before it is too late. In this backdrop, forum agrees on following charter and principles and vision:
