THE PROPOSED CLIMATE CHANGE COMMISSION
IUCN and its diverse member organizations are uniquely positioned to devise new climate solutions and refine existing ones, especially at the intersection of nature and climate.
WHAT WOULD THE CLIMATE CHANGE COMMISSION DO?
The commission would create a rallying point from which IUCN members could shape the global response to climate change. Specifically, a commission would create a platform to:
Leverage IUCN’s collective expertise, across all the members and commissions, while coordinating to prevent duplication
Achieve global consensus on climate-related projects and proposals
Spread these ideas worldwide and injecting them into policy-making efforts
In short, we envision a Climate Change Commission which would, in time, implement a climate protection plan to protect the earth from warming to 1.5 degrees.
