By becoming a member of the Australian Committee for IUCN you join a growing number of organisations, government agencies and Indigenous People's organisations working together pursue common goals, develop policy advice, share knowledge, build capacity, and work towards a shared vision for nature in Australia.
ACIUCN members enjoy:
High-profile, cross-sector events - To stimulate discussion and facilitate knowledge sharing, ACIUCN runs several high-level events with leading conservation experts for its Members and Associates every year. One of these is ACIUCN’s flagship ‘Science Informing Policy Symposium’, a two-day event to address solutions to some of Australia’s most critical environmental challenges. Past topics have included: Biodiversity and Ecosystems in Climate Change Mitigation; Innovation for 21st Century Conservation and Valuing Nature; and Ecosystems and Protected Areas.
Expert publications - To help inform and guide policy and decision making in Australia, ACIUCN works in partnership with its Members, Associates and IUCN Commission experts to produce peer reviewed publications which are distributed nationally to key decision makers. All publications are available on ACIUCN’s website at www. aciucn.org.au
Networking for nature - In many cases, the scale and complexity of Australia’s environmental challenges cannot be solved alone. ACIUCN provides its Members and Associates with the unique opportunity to create touch points with other organisations to help drive and support shared conservation agendas, extend the reach of Members and speed up the spread of the conservation message to civil society.
Facilitating expert advisory capacity - ACIUCN partners with the Australian IUCN network to provide expert advisory capacity to contribute to the development and implementation of national, regional and global environmental goals, conservation frameworks, processes and policies.
Forging global connections - The committee provides a vital link between the IUCN network and its Australian members to encourage and facilitate involvement and collaboration with the organisation’s global and regional activities, commissions and programmes.
