IUCN World Conservation Congress 2021

Marseille, France

The IUCN World Conservation Congress is where the world comes together to set priorities and drive conservation and sustainable development action. IUCN’s unique and inclusive membership gives the Congress a powerful mandate as it is not solely government or non-government, but both together.

Don't miss out on the WLE session on:

Agricultural Finance as a Force for Conservation: Innovations for and from the Global South

  • Room: H8-C Cap Corse

The session will spark collaborations, build understanding of the innovations that can turn agriculture into a driver of conservation, and give participants a chance to influence a major global Review on Sustainable Agricultural Intensification.
