Policy Director

Tanzeed Alam is the Policy Director for EWS-WWF. In his role, he develops the strategic direction and vision for the organisation’s policy engagement. The policy unit was set up in October 2010 with the aim of influencing government and business policy and practice in the UAE and region by providing science-based policy advice in biodiversity conservation, ecological footprint and climate change. Tanzeed manages EWS-WWF’s policy engagement with public and private sectors, providing leadership, vision and strategic direction for the organization as a whole.  The unit is currently focusing on three key areas: 1) The UAE Ecological Footprint Initiative, where EWS-WWF is providing policy advice to the UAE government on how best to reduce its footprint; 2) The ‘Heroes of the UAE private sector programme’, where companies are being helped to reduce their carbon footprint by conserving energy and water; 3) Providing strategic advice to government agencies on policy visions and strategies specifically related to energy, water, climate change and biodiversity.
