IUCN has just released a new publication “A Review of the Impact of IUCN Resolutions on International Conservation Efforts”. The main intention of this document is to give to the general public an overview of the importance of the IUCN World Conservation Congresses and General Assemblies, highlighting some of the major impacts and influences that Congress Resolutions have had on conservation.
It is not a comprehensive analysis, but rather it focus attention into some of the most significant issues the IUCN membership has addressed throughout the years. It is a recognition to the visionary statements and proposals made by IUCN in its 64 years of existence.
For those interested in more details on the over 1000 Resolutions that have been adopted to date, a link has been supplied to the full text report.
