Caribbean Initiative Website goes LIVE

16 June 2009 | News story

 IUCN US is delighted to announce that the Caribbean Initiative website is now live!

IUCN Caribbean is the Union’s most recent Initiative. It focuses on the Insular Caribbean - an ecologically coherent unit with unique biodiversity where conservation and natural resource management issues are at the heart of the challenge of sustainable development.

This new initiative was spearheaded at the 2004 IUCN World Conservation Congress (Resolution 3.033) at the request of Caribbean IUCN members, and it has since been developed with the support of the Governments of France and Italy. The Initiative was formerly launched, four years later, at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Barcelona in October 2008.
