Science and Economics

Culture of science and knowledge

For the Union to fulfil its role as an interface between science, policy, economics and practice, all components of IUCN both generate science and knowledge themselves and require access to that produced by others.

Supporting this, the Science and Knowledge Unit maintains the IUCN Library as a source of science and knowledge for the Union and beyond, and manages the production and dissemination of around 100 authoritative IUCN Publications annually. 

It also seeks to measure the input, output, uptake, and impact of science and economics across the Union on an ongoing basis, as a means of strengthening the contributions of conservation science and knowledge towards policy and practice.
