Protected areas are a key to our biodiversity future and provide hope for a Protected Planet. Well-managed protected areas not only conserve nature, but provide a wealth of essential ecosystem services that benefit communities and provide solutions to global challenges such as water provision, food security, human health and welfare, disaster risk reduction and climate change.
The IUCN Green List of protected areas is a new global initiative that celebrates the success of effective protected areas, and encourages the sharing of that success so that other protected areas can also reach high standards. More effective protected areas lead to greater benefits for humans and nature.
