IUCN Statement on Ukraine
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is gravely concerned by the military conflict currently taking place in Ukraine and deplores the human deaths and suffering that this is causing.
Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected, especially the people of Ukraine and in particular IUCN’s Ukraine-based Member organisation and Commission experts.
The crisis in Ukraine is also a stark reminder that other armed conflicts and humanitarian crises are still ongoing around the world, with profound humanitarian and environmental consequences. IUCN condemns all acts of violence and stands in solidarity with people affected by conflict everywhere. It further reiterates its unrelenting commitment to working together for a just world that values and conserves nature.
