IUCN Members come from very diverse backgrounds. They employ a wide range of approaches and work on a variety of projects and initiatives, however they have all joined IUCN because they share and support the objectives of the Union as set out in the Statutes and Regulations.
Our membership counts over 800 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and close to 100 international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), representing a wealth of expertise and experience in the field. States and Government Agencies are also part of the Union. This gives IUCN a neutral and convening power when gathering governments and civil society.
