Asia is a land full of natural and cultural wonder, with a lot of its greatest assets contained in forests, mountains, wetlands, marine habitats and other ecosystems. These vast ecosystems span countries and regional borders, and provide countless services to the region’s societies and economies. Thus, many of IUCN’s projects in Asia cut across more than just themes; they cut across regions and country borders.
Through regional projects IUCN Asia works on tackling the challenges that larger transboundary ecosystems face. From working on governance of river basins, to working towards coastal resilience, these transboundary projects tackle various environmental and development issues in South and Southeast Asia.
