World's biggest nature conservation meet opens in Korea

The International Union for Nature Conservation (IUCN) opened its World Conservation Congress this week, what organizers say is the world’s largest and most important conservation event. Beginning on Sept. 6 on Jeju Island in South Korea, more than 8,000 people from 170 countries are expected to participate. The IUCN congress is held every four years. This is the first time it is held in northeast Asia.

IUCN country representative for China, Zhu Chunquan, said participants will discuss how nature conservation relates to five key subjects: climate change, food security, development, governance and human values.






世界自然保护联盟(IUCN) 驻华代表朱春全向本刊记者介绍说,这次生态国际峰会相当于在自然生态保护领域的“奥运会”。本次会议将讨论气候变化、粮食安全、绿色经济、自然利用、保护生物多样性等五大问题。
