3rd IUCN World Conservation Congress

The World Conservation Congress is the general assembly of IUCN members, which takes place every three to four years. The Congress combines the business of the Union with technical conservation fora and provides an opportunity for the sharing of information and experience among IUCN’s worldwide constituency of members, Commission members, stakeholders and partner organizations. The Congress encompasses three principal elements: conducting the business of the Union, assessing the work of IUCN Commissions and taking stock of conservation.
