The ICCF Conservation Council is the strongest association of public and private sector representatives dedicated to international conservation. Council members represent NGOs, corporations, and government entities, and possess very diverse experience and skill sets. Some offer the latest science; others share practical knowledge of how to build community-based conservation projects through public-private partnerships. These organizations share a common desire to implement conservation projects safeguarding wildlife and biodiversity, protecting and restoring habitats, and generating economic opportunities and social benefits for surrounding communities who are necessarily the long-term stewards of local natural resources.
Conservation Council of Nations
The Conservation Council of Nations is committed to building the world's strongest network of policymakers, corporations, and NGOs working together to formulate policies supporting the efficient and beneficial use of natural resources, and for effective transnational conservation solutions, including through its Natural Resource Wealth Management™ program and initiatives. Through the Conservation Council of Nations, ICCF aims to extend the success of its caucus-based conservation network that supports cross-sector partnerships and natural resource management practices that thrive in the market place.
We are actively engaging parliaments worldwide to take on the challenge of adopting a long-term approach to natural resource wealth management. Our interparliamentary network is expanding to include the decision-makers who must be at the table for real change.
Our partners include corporate leaders from a diverse array of industries (oil and gas, healthcare, paper, forestry, entertainment, tourism, financial, agricultural, and more) as well as many critical NGOs. What unites these diverse organizations is a singular goal: conservation, or in a broader sense, the unique public-private partnerships that might be created to generate innovative solutions to address the world's most pressing conservation issues.
The ICCF is a proud partner of the International League of Conservation Photographers. The iLCP is a non-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate passion for preserving a healthy planet. Its team is a strong collaborative asset to conservationists in documenting a wide variety of beautiful environmental subjects to support our work. We are grateful to iLCP President Cristina Mittermeier and all contributing artists.
