OUR HISTORY

OUR KNOWLEDGE

Our underlying assumption is that when knowledge is available and people and institutions are empowered, they can better participate in decision-making. This is translated into the Water-Value Chain: the value created by IUCN to influence, encourage and assist water managers to develop more sustainable practices. 

OUR WORK

Though our global secretariat is based within IUCN Headquarters in Switzerland, we are actively involved in, and support, a wide range of water-related projects in different locations around the world. It works at the regional, national and local levels in various IUCN operational regions across Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania and America.
