International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress

Event Date: 
September 6, 2012 to September 15, 2012

The IUCN World Conservation Congress is the world’s largest and most important conservation event. Held every four years, it aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development. The Congress starts with a Forum where IUCN Members and partners discuss cutting-edge ideas, thinking and practice. The Forum leads into the Members’ Assembly, a unique global environmental parliament of governments and NGOs. For 2012, the IUCN World Conservation Congress has adopted a new format, aiming for greater coherence and cross-fertilization between the two parts. Main messages of each day of the Forum are presented to the Assembly the following morning. Forum sessions related to motions presented at the Assembly are also identified.
