TRAFFIC and the IUCN World Conservation Congress


© TRAFFIC Held once every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress (WCC) brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.

The Congress is the place where IUCN’s more than 1,300 Member organizations exercise their rights, influence the global conservation agenda and guide IUCN’s work plan for the four years to follow.

The next Congress "Planet at the Crossroads" takes place on 1-10 September 2016 in the Hawaiian capital, Honolulu. It is being hosted by the State of Hawaiʻi with the support of the Department of State of the USA.

TRAFFIC delivers a specialist programme of work on wildlife trade within IUCN and plays an active role at each WCC.  Our team and engagement at the Planet at the Crossroads Congress are explained below.

Combatting wildlife trafficking is one of the major themes at this year's congress and a short guide to relevant events on this theme can be downloaded here.

The promotion of international co-operation, providing advice and recommendations, along with action at the national level are among TRAFFIC’s top priorities to address wildlife trade issues; these priorities cut across all parts of our conservation programme and align closely with the aims of IUCN.
