First name:

Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD), Pakistan, is an independent policy think tank that focuses on policy research, public policy engagement, and leadership development in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. In addition to its Leadership Development Programme (since 1995), Social Capital Development (since 2004), Climate Action Programme (since 2007), and Water Programme (since 2013), LEAD Pakistan launched incubation of three Special Initiatives in 2015: Pakistan-Towards 2047; Knowledge Hub on SDGs; and Sustainable Cities. Through its field projects, under these programmes, it has been striving to build the social capital of the targeted communities. These strategic programmes aim to shape the development discourse in Pakistan and to ensure that the federal and provincial governments' development agendas are equitable, in line with international commitments and global best practices. During the last few years, LEAD has been the strongest proponent and exemplar of climate compatible development in the country.

LEAD Pakistan hosts several networks of sub-national, national and regional significance. Most of our work is carried out in partnership with other institutions. LEAD has pursued a robust and ambitious research agenda. Our research on various dimensions of climate change, water, environment, health and education, among other sectors, has attracted national and international attention.

With a history of successful delivery of over 200 development initiatives over 22 years, we are striving to enhance our impact on development in Pakistan, the South Asian region and beyond.
