Planeta.com spotlights the work of the IUCN and provides these profiles which are slowly updated before, during, and after events. We are keen to learn about trends in environmental conservation and the changing political and environmental climates. Request – Please let us know if you are attending or interested in following the congress as a remote participant.
The event was postponed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic from its original date in 2020.
The event is jointly organized by the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and brings together leaders from government, civil society, Indigenous peoples’ organizations, business, and academia to determine the world’s most pressing environmental and development challenges, and actions to address them.
