Environment and Gender Information (EGI) platform
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is an intergovernmental organization comprised of over 1,200 members, including more than 200 government and more than 900 non-government organizations. IUCN helps the world find pragmatic solutions to our most pressing environment and development challenges.
IUCN’s mission is to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable.
IUCN’s strong commitment to gender equality as an integral part of both conservation and sustainable development sets it apart from other technical environmental institutions. The GGO has evolved and grown over several decades of implementing this commitment in various programmes and offices throughout the world.
