The IUCN SSC Freshwater Conservation Committee (FCSC) was established in 2010 in order to urgently address the global freshwater biodiversity crisis.
|IUCN SSC Freshwater Sub_Committee Conservation Co-Chairs|
Co-Chair: Ian Harrison
The FCSC’s main activities are:
- coordination of freshwater species conservation activities through the SSC, to highlight emerging patterns and to ensure that increasing attention is given to issues concerning freshwater biodiversity conservation;
- to make recommendations to the SSC based on the work of the FCSC;
- to ensure freshwater species conservation issues are aligned within the SSC and the wider IUCN;
- to assist the SSC by providing authority and credibility in its engagement with policy processes and major freshwater related events;
- to raise the awareness and increase the profile of the freshwater biodiversity crisis.
Reports of FCSC meetings and a list of members are posted on the Union Portal accessible to all Portal users.
