A number of natural heritage sites face growing threats for example, from mining, illegal logging, and infrastructure. IUCN works to provide guidance while outlining its position on these key issues and seeking sustainable solutions. Mining and indigenous communities are among the first topics of advice notes or policies that apply widely to sites under threat.
