IIS at the IUCN World Conservation Congress
From 3rd to 11th September 2021, the IUCN World Conservation Congress – the world’s largest and most inclusive environmental decision-making forum – drove action on biodiversity, nature-based recovery and climate change. Bringing together civil society, indigenous peoples and states, the IUCN Congress set the global nature conservation agenda at a time when the link between biodiversity and human wellbeing is made increasingly evident by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The IUCN World Conservation Congress brought together the global nature conservation community, including top international experts in conservation science, policy and practice. Held every four years, the Congress allows IUCN’s 1,400 Member organisations to democratically determine the most pressing issues in nature conservation and actions to address them.
IIS director Bernardo Strassburg joined as a panelist of the closing plenary of the Knowledge, Learning, Innovation, & Technology for Advancing Conservation WCC Theme, that promoted robust approaches for measuring conservation impact, and educate on new advances in impact evaluation in theory and practice.
