SSC is aiming to make all of its Action Plans available online in PDF. Some are hosted by partner organizations or on Specialist Group websites. Most of the plans that are hosted on the SSC website have been split into chapters and, where necessary, sections, in order to keep the download time of each section to a minimum.
Where a PDF file is not currently available, there is an Executive Summary as a smaller file and the entire plan can be made available on CD for the price of the printed publication - please contact the IUCN Librarian with your request.
Those Action Plans provided as complete PDF files can be accessed by using the bookmarks on the left of the contents page. If you have a slow internet connection, you may wish to navigate to smaller sections using the subfolders.
Hard copy Action Plans can be purchased from the IUCN Publications Unit, E-mail email@example.com or through the on-line Publications page.
