Looking to the future: A new workplan for IUCN Europe

The European Work Plan is IUCN’s response to the environmental crisis which the world is facing. The European Work Plan reflects not only the actions foreseen in the European region, but also the influence that this region can have in the rest of the world. It is also Europe’s contribution to the wider global IUCN Nature 2030 Programme.

The Union’s main focus will be on convening and consensus building with public and private stakeholders, knowledge products such as the IUCN Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions or the IUCN Red Lists, and the policy context, including the implementation of the EU Green Deal and the external influence of the European region. In this context, Nature-based Solutions are a perfect example of a tool to be mainstreamed in all our areas of work, to provide benefits for people, the planet and the economy. Through a number of areas of work, we will pursue the sustainable use of land and its restoration, the integrating of nature in cities, a reshaping of our economy and future healthy oceans, and tackling climate change.
