Building on the momentum of IUCN World Conservation Congresses, IUCN has launched the IUCN Leaders Forum, a new series of high-level events, to convene global leaders more frequently on key topics of relevance to the international agenda. 

Following the first two successful editions in Jeju, South Korea and in Geneva, Switzerland focused primarily on respectively 'building nature-positive economies and societies’ and ’global goals for nature: tracking progress, financing’, Geneva will play host again to the 2024 event.
