LEAD Pakistan

Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD) is a not-for-profit organization committed to promote change towards economically sustainable, socially equitable and environmentally responsible development.

LEAD Pakistan was established in 1995. It incorporated an innovative capacity building program designed to provide knowledge, awareness, skills, exposure and linkages to leaders of tomorrow, in order for them to integrate sustainable development concerns in their work. The program engages with senior and middle level managers representing the corporate, public and business sectors, as well as the media, academia, and civil society. LEAD Pakistan also undertakes policy research and dialogue and outreach initiatives designed to promote synergy among the different stakeholders in national development.

LEAD Pakistan’s mission is to create, strengthen and support networks of people and institutions. These networks are then used to promote change towards development that is economically sound, environmentally responsible and socially equitable.
