Chapter Summary

Founded in 1948, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a leading global authority on the environment and sustainable development, whose mission is "to influence, encourage, and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature, and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable". The IUCN aims to provide a neutral forum for governments, NGOs, scientists, business, and local communities to find pragmatic solutions to conservation and development challenges. Membership of the IUCN is open to states, government agencies, political/ economic integration organizations, national and international non-governmental organizations, economic development agencies, scientists, academics, the private sector, and representatives of civil society that aim to promote the conservation of biodiversity. The IUCN is funded by governments, bilateral and multilateral agencies, foundations, member organizations, and corporations.
