IUCN’s Government Partners, which include State members, provide vital core and project funding as well as technical support.  Together, we invest in nature, our life-support system, indispensable to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Government partners enable direct action that addresses the triple environmental crisis: pollution, climate change and nature loss. Their support leverages IUCN’s unique combination of cutting edge science, on-the-ground presence, and diverse, growing membership to restore degraded land, put a stop to plastic pollution, implement Nature-based Solutions to the most pressing societal challenges, and conserve the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots, helping nature and communities thrive for generations. They enable the development of tools and standards that raise the bar for good practice for a healthy planet.
