The world is increasingly recognising the inextricable link between biodiversity conservation and human and economic wellbeing, a connection made all the more visible by the COVID-19 pandemic. The IUCN Congress will be a key milestone for nature conservation and the development of a new global framework for biodiversity. The French government and IUCN remain steadfast in their commitment to these goals.
The different Congress components will take place on the following dates:
• The Forum will take place from 4 to 7 September
• The Exhibition will be held from 4 to 9 September
• The IUCN Members’ Assembly will meet from 8 to 10 September
• The Nature Generation Areas, or “Espaces Générations Nature”, will be running from 4 to 11 September”
