Partner Profile: IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit
The Freshwater Biodiversity Unit of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is working to inform and promote the conservation of freshwater species through providing robust and comprehensive data about their conservation status and the most important sites for these species.
The Freshwater Biodiversity Unit is comprised of some of the most knowledgeable and dedicated freshwater scientists worldwide and their work is, quite literally, putting freshwater species on the map. The IUCN is a leading provider of biodiversity knowledge to guide action on the ground, convene conservation planning and develop advocacy tools.
Synchronicity Earth has supported the IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit since 2013. Our funding is giving a vital boost to the team’s work, enabling new and innovative projects to gain traction. It is also ensuring that information and fundraising products can be developed and that freshwater biodiversity conservation agendas can be raised at international conferences and events.
