IUCN pursues its overarching global vision of a just world that values and conserves nature through its mission of influencing, encouraging and assisting societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable.
IUCN produces a global intersessional programme (IP) for the period between two consecutive World Conservation congresses. Articulating goals and focus areas for the next four years, the IP represents a solid commitment to deliver what has been projected in the programme.
The new IUCN Programme framework for the period between the 4th and 5th World Conservation congresses will begin in 2009 and last until 2012. Its implementation will be facilitated by various IUCN global and regional programmes. As a country programme under Country Group 2, IUCN Pakistan (IUCNP) will be contributing towards the larger IUCN Asia Regional IP.
The development of IUCNP’s intersessional programme started with a situation analysis of the current development and environment scenario in Pakistan, followed by a series of workshops and consultations with members, partners and donors. The draft programme has also been shared with members and donors. After approval by the Regional Conservation Forum and later by the World Conservation Congress in 2008, IUCNP’s IP will become the strategic framework for IUCN’s work in Pakistan.
