On October 25th, the Center for Large Landscape Conservation was granted Accreditation as an NGO Observer to the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA), the governing body of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). With headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, UNEP is the leading global environmental authority, coordinating activities across the United Nations system for environmentally-sound policies and practices, with a particular emphasis on sustainable development. The Center looks forward to participating in UNEA through written statements, participation in meetings, and increased engagement with government delegations and other international NGOs in the coming years.
In addition to UNEP, the Center is a recently accredited NGO Observer to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Convention on Migratory Species, and actively participates in these bodies as an expert voice on ecological connectivity. Learn more about UNEP at www.unenvironment.org.
The Center’s resource library provides access to ideas, tools for policy makers and practitioners, case studies, and more.
