Held every four years, the Congress aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development. More than 8,000 leaders from government, the public sector, non-governmental organizations, business, UN agencies and social organizations will discuss, debate and decide solutions for the world’s most pressing environment and development issues in the following three streams:
- A new climate for change
- Healthy environments - healthy people
- Safeguarding the diversity of life.
The Congress starts with the four-day Forum run by IUCN members, Commissions and partners discussing cutting edge ideas, thinking and practice. The Forum leads into the four-day IUCN Members’ Assembly, a unique global environmental parliament of governments and NGOs.
