IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, IUCN has launched a new blog, where IUCN Members and partners will debate topical conservation issues, alongside a series of events to be held around the world.
The forests of Papua in Indonesia have been referred to as a last frontier, and those that live in and around them are instrumental in their future. Clarifying and codifying rights to tenure and management may be the key to keeping these forests standing.
IUCN SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) has contributed to research published today in the journal ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences’, which highlights the urgent need for governments to develop measures to control the spread of emerging alien species.
