I have had the privledge of being an invited member of International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) for many years on their Commission for Environmental, Economic, and Social Policy. However, this was the first IUCN World Congress I have been able to attend. The #IUCNCongress gave me the chance to build relationships with scientists, business leaders, and policy experts from around the globe. Check out the Congress Highlights here.
What does IUCN have to do with a research consulting firm? One of the reasons that I take the time to work with this organization is that they align closely with Shelby Global values. They also think globally, are inclusive of businesses/corporations, and work towards nature-based solutions for both people and the planet. For example, the #COVID pandemic showed just how critical our relationship with nature really is, our human wellbeing depends on it. Respecting nature can help us #BuildBackBetter
Since I rarely turn away a #MethodsMonday blog post opportunity, note that IUCN has one of the most comprehensive ranges of authoritative publications for conservation and sustainable development: https://www.iucn.org/resources
