Invitation to the IUCN Local Action Summit - 3 September 2021!
IUCN European Regional Office is pleased to invite IFLA Europe and our network partners to the IUCN Local Action Summit on 3 September 2021, from 12h00 – 16h00. The Summit can be attended online or in person as part of the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Marseille.
The main objectives of this event are:
· To showcase the range of actions that can be taken by sub-national governments and their partners to deliver conservation outcomes at scale;
· Foster partnerships between IUCN constituents and cities and sub-national governments and make the case for investing in nature-based solutions as part of a green recovery;
· Exact commitments from sub-national governments and their partners to help deliver the Nature 2030 IUCN Programme and, by extension, the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals.
IUCN will welcome speakers from cities, sub-national authorities, civil society, science, business and international institutions, including the European Commission.
