About the Event

In view of the sanitary situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, France and the  International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) have decided to  postpone the IUCN World Conservation Congress, which was to be held in  January 2021 in Marseille. New dates for the event will be announced in  due course. France and IUCN remain  fully committed to the development of a global framework for the  conservation of biodiversity and will continue to act towards this  objective. We will provide more information on preparation, programme, logistics and more on the page dedicated to the Congress postponement as it becomes available.

Held once every four years, but this time delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.

The event has three main components: The Members’ Assembly, where IUCN Members vote on priority actions; the Forum, a global marketplace of conservation science and innovation; and the Exhibition, where exhibitors can showcase their work to Congress participants and the public.
