An urgent call for collaborative action at the IUCN Congress: A blog by ICMM CEO Tom Butler

Natural systems sustain life on earth. Yet…

Wildlife populations have halved since 1970. This stark fact was highlighted in research by WWF and the Zoological Society of London in their 2014 Living Planet Report. The IUCN Congress theme, Planet at the Crossroads, is timely as current efforts to halt or even slow the rate of species extinction are failing.

The message is clear: we need urgent and collaborative action to tackle the unprecedented challenge facing society.
