The IUCN Green List Standard User Manual
The GLPCA Standard is backed by a IUCN Green List User Manual describing the rules and procedures that entities involved in the GLPCA programme have to follow. The provisions of the User Manual are meant to ensure that the processes for evaluation and standard development are transparent, objective, impartial and inclusive. At the same time, the provisions aim to be easy to implement and allow the GLPCA programme to go to scale.
In 2016, Version 1.0 of the IUCN Green List Standard and accompanying User Manual were launched at IUCN’s World Conservation Congress in Hawai‘i.
