Species and biodiversity

Endemic and threatened female golden langur

Asia harbours one third of the world’s recognised biodiversity hotspots. IUCN aims to promote conservation and equitable and sustainable use of biodiversity in the region.

Examples of our work in this area include: updating the National Red List of Endangered Species in several countries; assisting governments to develop their National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans for the Convention in Biological Diversity; and implementing species-focused initiatives (e.g. vultures, tigers, rhinos) across the region.
