In Oceania, millions of people are directly dependent upon nature’s bounties for their daily food, housing and medicine. Good environmental governance will ensure the environment continues to provide goods and services for the prosperity of human societies. Sharing power, responsibility and benefits in natural resource management, as well as strengthening governance arrangements including legal entitlements, making decisions more transparent, inclusive and equitable, are good for both people and biodiversity.
What we do:
IUCN Pacific Centre for Environmental Governance is to promote, facilitate and support the development and growth of environmental governance throughout the Pacific. Using a rights based, multi-disciplinary approach to environmental governance, the Centre brings together IUCN’s work on environmental law, leadership for green growth, natural resource economics and environment and social policy.
