Agenda and Documents

Approved by the IUCN Council, the Draft Congress Agenda with details on the Congress schedule and content is available as Congress document WCC-2012-1.3 Rev1. A version of the Agenda posted in the text box on the right hand side contains the estimated time when agenda items will be discussed in the Members’ Assembly, as well as the document references.

The first batch of Congress documents requiring decisions at, or presented for information of, the Members’ Assembly issued on 5 April 2012 are listed below. Additional documents are now also available since 8 July 2012. A small number of documents have been issued after 8 July 2012.

Below, all documents are listed individually. For ease of reference and printing purposes, compilations of ALL Congress documents issued on 5 April and issued on 8 July 2012 have been posted here separately. Also the motions published on 8 July 2012 have been compiled into one document and listed as Congress document 9.6.

To facilitate the referencing to relevant documents and parts of documents during Congress, individual documents follow the same pagination as the compilation of all Congress documents. Any additional documents which may be published later will continue the same pagination. In other words, with the exception of the motions which will only be referenced by motion number, the entire documentation that will be available for Congress will follow a single sequence of page numbers.

The ‘document date’ refers to the date on which the document has been issued or ‘updated’. ‘Updated’ means with correction of the format or typographical errors, without changing the content.

The reports of recognized Regional Committees referred to in Agenda Item 8.5 of the Congress Agenda have been published in the section ‘Reports from National and Regional Committees’ of the Congress website.
