The Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM) is one of IUCN’s six scientific Commissions. CEM is a network of volunteer experts, numbering close to 1,000, from around the world working on ecosystem management related issues, for example climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, Red List of Ecosystems, fisheries and ecosystem restoration and services.

The Global Ecosystem Management Programme (EMP) is the focal programme for CEM, which provides secretariat and technical support. EMP is now located at the IUCN Regional Office in Nairobi, Kenya, though CEM membership and communications support remains at IUCN Headquarters in Gland, Switzerland.
