Founded in 1948 as the world’s first global environmental organization, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature supports scientific research, manages field projects and brings multi-stakeholder groups together to develop policy, law and best practices. With nearly 1,200 government and nonprofit members, more than 15,000 volunteer experts from 185 countries and almost 1,000 staff in 45 offices around the world, the organization is the leading authority on the environment and sustainable development. It is governed by a council of member representatives elected every four years at the World Conservation Congress and maintains official observer status at the United Nations General Assembly.

Priorities are set every four years by member organizations, and work is executed across the global network. Current priorities focus on mobilizing communities working for biodiversity conservation, sustainable development and poverty reduction. Hundreds of projects are implemented around the world, ranging from oil and gas companies addressing biodiversity in the Niger Delta to research that examines the impact of development on rare whales found off Russia’s coast. Experts also set and monitor global standards such as the Red List of Threatened Species and the Red List of Threatened Ecosystems that help embed conservation into land use planning and national development.
