The IUCN Programme 2021-2024 “One Nature, One Future” Draft for consultation

For securing the planetary life support system by 2030, the IUCN Programme Areas for 2021-2024 are:

Healthy Lands and Waters

The Healthy Lands and Waters Programme Area will deliver a renaissance in the relationship between people and nature on land and inland waters. IUCN will strive for a world in 2030 where ecological integrity is achieved in natural landscapes, that are fully understood, valued and conserved by a diversity of actors. While ensuring that key biodiversity areas are protected and conserved, a restorative land economy would ensure the maintenance of ecosystem functions in production landscapes. 

Healthy Oceans

This Programme Area will restore the health of the world ocean. By 2030, IUCN will secure the functioning of marine ecosystems by protection, restoration, effective management over seascapes and oceans, minimizing stresses and building resilience, mitigating pollution, including CO2 emissions, and stopping biodiversity loss. Reducing harmful human activities, like overfishing and pollution, will help build ocean’s resilience to warmer and more acidic waters, and will contribute to shared prosperity and climatic stability.

Climate Change Mitigation

The goal of the Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Programme Area is to simultaneously reduce the risks posed by climate change to the world’s natural systems and responsibly harness the full potential of these natural systems in achieving a low-greenhouse gas emission, climate-resilient, biodiversity-rich future in support of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. By 2030, ecosystem-dependent communities and vulnerable ecosystems will be made more resilient to climate change, and nature-based solutions will be fully integrated within the climate mitigation and adaptation policies and actions of every country in the world.

Adaptation Equitable Governance of Natural Resources

IUCN recognizes that good governance and the rule of law critically determine both the extent to which ecosystems contribute to human well-being and the long-term prospects for the conservation of nature. By 2030, we see a world where good governance and the rule of law foster healthy ecosystems and biodiversity while contributing to the realization of human rights, social equity, gender equality, rights of nature and resilience to global changes. IUCN will strive to realize justice and equity for people, communities and nature, with a particular focus on advancing the rights and empowerment of indigenous peoples and local communities and achieving gender equality.
