The World Conservation Cngress brought together almost 7,000 participants from 183 different countries to debate on local, regional and global issues alike.

The Forum portion of the Congress showcased 943 events, of which 790 were organized by IUCN members. As ambitious as the World Conservation Congress was, the report cites areas for improvement or strategic redesign.

One particular need is to rework the model for receiving and processing the increasing number of motions submitted for consideration by the IUCN Members´ Assembly.

IUCN is dedicated to improving on the World Conservation Congress and is preparing a formal response to the recommendations in the evaluation report.
