International Union for Conservation of Nature
IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization, with almost 1,300 government and NGO Members and more than 15,000 volunteer experts in 185 countries. Almost 1,000 workers in 45 offices and hundreds of partners in public, NGO, support our work and private sectors around the world.
IUCN work focuses on valuing and conserving nature, ensuring effective and equitable governance of its use, and deploying nature-based solutions to global challenges in climate, food and development. IUCN supports scientific research, manages field projects all over the world, and brings governments; NGOs, the UN and companies together to develop policy, laws and best practice.
IUCN is a great added value to the implementation of this project, benefiting from its wide network and members operating in the targeted countries, in order to foster the Regional Dimension and ensure integrated and comprehensive implementation.
