IUCN

IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization.

Conserving biodiversity is central to the mission of IUCN. We demonstrate how biodiversity is fundamental to addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges such as climate change, sustainable development and food security.

To deliver conservation and sustainability at both the global and local level, IUCN builds on its strengths in the following areas:

The Oceania Regional Office of IUCN was established in 2007 to mobilize the Union's resources, build on its strengths and deliver on its vision 'for a just world that values and conserves nature'. The Regional Office is based in Suva, Fiji and aims to address key environmental concerns of the region particularly for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

IUCN Oceania currently implements activities in more than 10 countries in the region promoting green economy solutions; offering nature-based solutions, enhancing governance arrangements and contributing to conserving Oceania's unique and beautiful species diversity. Our priorities are implemented through our five programme areas: species, energy, environmental law, marine, water and wetlands and the green growth initiative.
