How we engage

IUCN uses ecosystem-based approaches and works with governments and local communities to develop and implement policies and actions contributing to long-term disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.

IUCN addresses information gaps and capacity needs on the sustainable management, conservation and restoration of ecosystems, with the aim of achieving sustainable and resilient development.
