   Voices for Nature IUCN Commissions working together for people and nature    I   U   C   N   P   h  o   t  o   L   i   b  r  a  r  y   /   ©    C  a   t   h  e  r   i  n  e   G  r  a  s  Founded in 1948 as the world’s rst international environmental organization, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) today represents the largest global conservation network with more than 1,200 State and NGO Member organizations and 11,000 expert volunteers. Biodiversity conservation is at the core of IUCN’s efforts to promote the importance of nature and the solutions it offers to some of the world’s greatest challenges such as climate change, food security, and social and economic development. IUCN’s six expert Commissions are a great asset to the organization and provide a global pool of science, research and action. These vital Commissions—supported by a broad and active volunteer network—help assess the state of the world’s natural resources and contribute top scientic, legal and policy advice used to drive conservation and sustainable development.  The six IUCN Commissions focus on developing sound environmental laws and policies, linking con - servation to social and economic decision making, evaluating the status of species and ecosystems, promoting expanded and improved management of protected areas and natural resources, and strengthening conservation through education, training and strategic communication.  The work of the Commissions underpins IUCN’s work programme and its focus areas which are: Valuing and conserving nature,  Effective and equitable governance of nature’s use, and  Deploying nature-based solutions to global challenges in climate, food security and development.  IUCN Commissions  0302 World CommissiononEnvironmental Law    ©    D  a  r   i  u  s  z   S  z  w  a  n  g  r  u   b  e  r   /   D  r  e  a  m  s   t   i  m  e .  c  o  m  Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM) CEM members provide expert guidance on the management of natural and modied ecosystems to promote biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. Areas of expertise include different types of ecosystems such as arid lands, mountain ecosystems or steppes. They also include cross-cutting aspects of ecosystem management such as ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change, disaster risk reduction, and ecosystem resilience, services and restoration. In addition to ecosystem knowledge and management, CEM is developing the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems , a global standard that assesses the status of ecosystems, applicable at local, national, regional and global levels. This will help guide conservation action and land use planning and highlight the livelihood services that ecosystems provide. CEM will continue to expand its global network of ecosystem management professionals to better address international ecosystem concerns while fostering a collaborative relationship among its members, IUCN Members and partners, and other professional networks. “International knowledge products such as the Red List of Ecosystems enable policy makers worldwide to make better decisions based on synergy between conservation and development. CEM is central to providing this vital resource.” - Piet Wit, Chair, CEM Commission Chair: Piet Witwit@syzygy.nl 0504    ©    M  a   t   t  e  o   R  o  s  s   i   I   U   C   N   P   h  o   t  o   L   i   b  r  a  r  y   /   ©    B  r   i  g   i   t   t  e   S  c   h  u  s   t  e  r   I   U   C   N   P   h  o   t  o   L   i   b  r  a  r  y   /   ©    S  u  e   M  a   i  n   k  a   I   U   C   N   P   h  o   t  o   L   i   b  r  a  r  y   /   ©    L  u   k  a   D  a   k  s   k  o   b   l  e  r  06 07 Commission on Educationand Communication (CEC) CEC promotes effective communication and cutting-edge capacity development to create positive environmental change. Combining modern technology and international networks with traditional approaches such as face-to-face professional development sessions, CEC members promote two key ideas. First, everyone has a role to play in nature conservation. Second, education and communication are essential for changing the way we view and value nature for the better. Working with experts from around the world, CEC showcases successful approaches to communicating for nature. Composed of professionals from a variety of elds—university professors, scientists, media representatives, lmmakers, communications and marketing professionals—CEC fosters collaborative partnerships in advocating for sustainability. Some of the diverse areas in which CEC members are active include capacity development, strategic communications, social media, educational technologies, environmental information, environmental security, learning, leadership and inspiring a new generation. “Members of CEC believe that communication is the key to reviving people’s appreciation of the value and beauty of nature. We need to communicate conservation differently by tapping into cutting-edge knowledge in fields such as marketing psychology, strategic communications, and change management.” - Juliane Zeidler, Chair, CEC Commission Chair: Dr Juliane Zeidler j.zeidler@iecn-namibia.com    ©    I   U   C   N   /   I  n   t  u   B  o  e   d   h   i   h  a  r   t  o  n  o   ©    K   i  p   E  v  a  n  s   /   M   i  s  s   i  o  n   B   l  u  e   ©    S  a  n  c   l  e  m  e  n  e  s   d   i  g  p  r  o   /   D  r  e  a  m  s   t   i  m  e .  c  o  m
