IUCN National Swedish Committee meeting

CCB is a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, IUCN, and participates in the meetings of the National Swedish Committee which take place twice per year. This meeting was convened at the Swedish Ministry of Environment and CCB was represented at the meeting by the Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Working Area leader.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a membership Union uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations. It provides public, private and non-governmental organisations with the knowledge and tools that enable human progress, economic development and nature conservation to take place together. Created in 1948, IUCN has evolved into the world’s largest and most diverse environmental network. It harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its 1,300 Member organisations and the input of some 13,000 experts. IUCN is the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.
