    The IUCN World Conservation Congress is the world’s largest and most important conservation event. Held every four years, the Congress aims to improve how we manage our natural environment for human, social and economic development. The 2012 World Conservation Congress will be held from 6 to 15 September 2012 in Jeju, Republic of Korea. Leaders from government, the public sector, non-governmental organizations, business, UN agencies and social organizations will discuss, debate and decide solutions for the world’s most pressing environment and development issues.The Congress starts with a Forum where IUCN members and partners discuss cutting edge ideas, thinking and practice. The Forum leads into the IUCN Members’ Assembly, a unique global environmental parliament of governments and NGOs. Effective conservation action cannot be achieved by conservationists alone. The 2012 IUCN World Conservation Congress is the place to put aside differences and work together to provide the means and mechanisms for good environmental governance, engaging all parts of society to share both responsibilities and the benefits of conservation.


    As members of the IUCN's Tourism and Protected Areas Specialist Group (TAPAS) we will focus particular attention on events within the event that focus on tourism:

    Newly-published textbook on “Integrating Business Skills into Ecotourism Operations” (download from: This book is targeted at conservation organisations that are developing ecotourism businesses, providing them with an introduction to the business skills required to manage such businesses as market viable and effective tools for conservation. It was created as part of the Business Skills Transfer Programme for Ecotourism Development, a joint effort by IUCN and Kuoni Group aimed at supporting conservation organisations in managing ecotourism-related businesses through business skills, knowledge and experience sharing.

    Members' Assembly

    The Members’ Assembly, the highest decision-making body of IUCN, brings together IUCN Members to debate and establish environmental policy, to approve the IUCN Programme and to elect the IUCN Council.

    World Commission on Protected Areas


    Innovation and dedication are keys to progress in our national parks and protected areas’ conservation. The Kenton Miller award celebrates individuals who are taking bold steps in protecting these most valued resources by recognizing their invaluable work with a 5,000 USD grant and accompanying citation.


    The Congress theme is to be Nature+, a simple and memorable slogan that captures the fundamental importance of nature and its inherent link to every aspect of our lives. Nature is naturally strong. Even the most delicate looking plant, animal or ecosystem is relatively tough, their survival instincts honed over generations of evolution. But many years of human civilization have undermined our environment and the fundamental natural infrastructure that supports our lives, communities and economies. Nature+ is about boosting the resilience of nature – improving how quickly nature and people adapt to change. Better use of the inherent robustness of nature leads to healthier natural systems, better results from ecosystem and biodiversity restoration, and healthier people, communities and economies.

    The Forum

    The Forum is a public gathering hosted by the world’s conservation community, bringing together people from all over the world to discuss, share and learn.Addressing the world’s most pressing sustainable development challenges, the Forum offers a unique platform for debates, workshops, dialogues, roundtable discussions, training courses, music and exhibitions.

      Resolutions and Recommendations adopted in Jeju

      The Resolutions process remains a central element of IUCN’s governance system and an important means by which members can influence future directions in the conservation community and seek international support in various conservation issues. These Resolutions and Recommendations, together with the IUCN Programme 2013–2016, constitute the foundation for the work of the Union and assist IUCN in achieving its Mission.

      The Resolutions and Recommendations that were adopted by the Members' Assembly during the 2012 IUCN World Conservation Congress are now available in one document. Each individual Resolution and Recommendation can be found below.
      Voting results per Resolution/Recommendation are shown with the numbering of the original motion which might be different from the publication number. A conversion table can be found here. For some Resolutions more than one voting result is displayed which is because of the votes on amendments for that Resolution/Recommendation. The different votes for each motion are explained in the Proceedings.
