SSNC - Global Department

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) Global department, collaborates with more than 40 environmental organisations around the world who work for the protection of the environment, sustainable development and human rights.

What we do

The SSNC’s global work is based on the operational areas that the organisation has decided on for the Swedish operation – agriculture and food security, climate, marine ecosystems and fisheries, chemicals and forest – as well as sustainable consumption.


In order to maximise our results we confine ourselves to a total of ten countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The ten countries are Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, the Philippines, China, India, Indonesia, Brazil and Ukraine.


The SSNC’s global work is founded on a conviction that change is driven by commitment, knowledge and determination. All work must be rightsbased and permeated by awareness of gender issues, and the endeavour for equality between the genders.
