Our Work in Asia
To deliver on our mission toward a just world that values and conserves nature, our work in Asia builds on IUCN's niche as the world's authority on biodiversity conservation, environmental governance, and nature-based solutions.
The Asia regional agenda and strategy cover five programme areas and three strategic themes:
- Species and their habitats
- Water and wetlands
- Marine and coastal ecosystems
- Protected and conserved areas
- Forest and agriculture landscapes
- Nature-based solutions
- Livelihoods for nature
- Governance and rights
We implement more than a hundred projects throughout Asia, including several initiatives in large ecosystems that extend beyond the shared borders of two or more countries.
In delivering these projects, we bring IUCN's unique convening strength to address the region's challenges, both at the national and regional levels, working with Asia's many different sectors to build solutions together.
