IUCN Digest – 25 October 2022

IUCN Digest


Welcome to the bi-weekly digest for IUCN Members and IUCN Commission members.


Message from the Director General


Dear Members,


We just ended the inaugural IUCN Leaders Forum: Building nature-positive economies and societies in Jeju, the Republic of Korea. It was a success with 400 in-person participants. At the Forum, leaders from government, private sector, and civil society moved concretely towards a nature-positive framework (photo by Jeju Province-Ministry of Environment ROK-IUCN). This will be fundamental to achieving a world in harmony with nature. You can find the outcomes document on our website, here. I would like to thank our host partners and Members – the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Korea and the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, who played a key role in organising and supporting the Forum, as well as all our sponsors.


We must now use the momentum from Jeju to drive us through the upcoming marathon of COPs. IUCN will participate in the Ramsar COP14, the UNFCCC COP27, the CITES COP19, and of course – the CBD COP15. And I know that we will have a strong presence in all of these COPs because you, dear Members, will be there with us. I look forward to waving the flag of IUCN high with you over the next two months and beyond.

On 2 November, IUCN and its Members are invited to attend the online launch of a new UNEP report exploring this theme. The UNEP report helps set the baseline for the new Sports for Nature Framework, which IUCN is developing with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the International Olympic Committee and UNEP, in consultation with sports organisations. To participate in the launch event, hosted by Loughborough University, please register via the booking form.
