Our work

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.

Throughout the region, we lead initiatives that address species loss and ecosystem degradation, help improve management of natural resources for the benefit of human communities, and promote natural infrastructure to reduce risks and impacts of disasters.

Our projects cut across themes such as species and biodiversity conservation, climate change and resilience, coastal and marine ecosystems, protected areas, water and wetlands, and nature-based disaster risk reduction.

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.
