IUCN´s knowledge products include The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (which will be linked to the Global Invasive Species Database); The WDPA (with UNEP WCMC); the developing IUCN Red List of Ecosystems and Key Biodiversity Areas. Each of these are at a different stage of development in terms of the conceptual / technical side, the tools for inputting data (Species Information Service), websites and databases. As IUCN moves into the next Programme period it is important to determine how best to further develop these products and make operational links between them. It is also essential to bear in mind the needs of the users. This will be the objective of this discussion. The session is aimed at those who use, manage, or provide information for these products.
