Society for Conservation and Protection of Environment – SCOPE, founded in 1988, is registered as a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Pakistan.
Most of our work is of networking, capacity building and advocacy in nature which is spread over national, regional and global scale. However we believe in solid action and implement projects in the field.
Our mission is to protect environment at local, national and global level by following and implementing approaches of "Agenda 21", through advocacy, research, non-political, non-religious and non-racial non ethnic, commitment driven approach.
SCOPE´s operational strategy is to involve experts, volunteers, media, students, government agencies and other stakeholders in achieving its goals. SCOPE has been using advocacy, public awareness, research, participatory learning, networking, public interest legal actions as its tools.
