Hamza Butt

Programme Officer | Business and Biodiversity

Positioned with the Nature Economy team, I am closely working on a number of projects in the sustainable infrastructure, green financing and business space.

Previous experience & expertise

Hamza brings with him a diverse experience of strategy & programme development and management for issues such as nature-based solutions, sustainable investments and climate adaptation. He has been involved in policy-making, advocacy, engaging with businesses, and led the sustainable infrastructure programme at WWF, which allowed him to work with a wide range of stakeholders including national governments, businesses and donor agencies. His desk-work has been complemented by his work in the field, where he has spent weeks chasing Snow Leopards in the northern highlands of Pakistan and also closely worked with the local communities. On the academic front, he was awarded the Chevening scholarship to study Climate Change Policy at Cardiff University. In addition to that, he also has a degree in Development Studies from NUST’s social sciences school in Islamabad. In his spare time, he enjoys watching and playing a game of cricket.
