IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature, is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental network - a democratic membership union with more than 1,200 government and NGO member organizations, and almost 11,000 volunteer scientists in more than 160 countries.

The World Conservation Congress is IUCN's highest decision-making body. It is the place where IUCN Members exercise their rights and influence the global conservation agenda.
