IUCN World Conservation Congress
The world is increasingly recognising the inextricable link between biodiversity conservation and human and economic wellbeing, a connection made all the more visible by the COVID-19 pandemic. The IUCN Congress will be a key milestone for nature conservation and the development of a new global framework for biodiversity. The French government and IUCN remain steadfast in their commitment to these goals.
The IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020 comprises the following components:
- Forum (4-7 September)
- Exhibition (4 -9 September)
- IUCN Members’ Assembly (8-10 September)
- Nature Generation Areas, or “Espaces Générations Nature” (4-11 September)
