International Union for Conservation of Nature Netherlands (IUCN NL)
About IUCN NL
Nature is fundamental to our well-being. It provides us with food, clean air and water, energy, shelter, medicine, recreation and inspiration. As long as we keep nature healthy, we can enjoy its benefits. And share these benefits fairly: with the poor and vulnerable, with other species, and with future generations. That’s our vision: a just world that values and conserves nature.
IUCN NL is the Dutch national committee of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the world’s largest and most diverse environmental network. IUCN harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its 1,300 member organisations, uniquely composed of both government, civil society organisations and business, and the input of some 10,000 experts. IUCN is the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it. IUCN is headquartered in Gland, Switzerland. Visit IUCN.org to learn more about IUCN’s work.
