The UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) is a global centre of excellence on biodiversity and nature’s contribution to society and the economy.
We work at the interface of science, policy, and practice to tackle the global crisis facing nature and support the transition to a sustainable future for people and the planet.
We develop knowledge and capacity for a nature-positive world
Our cutting-edge science, data and insights inform policy and business decisions worldwide.
Achieving the vision of a world living in harmony with nature by 2050 will require transformative and systemic change across all sectors. We bring together and support governments, businesses, research bodies, and more to put nature at the heart of decision-making.
