If you work or are interested in sustainable use of biodiversity and the livelihoods it supports, please come to this event to meet and network with other like minds from across IUCN.
SULi is a new cross-Commission Specialist Group launched at the beginning of 2012. It continues and extends the work of the SSC Sustainable Use Specialist Group, which has been largely inactive for several years. The aims of this event are to:
• Introduce and launch the new group within IUCN;
• Foster interaction between CEESP and SSC on sustainable use and livelihoods;
• Raise the profile of the group among IUCN members, regions, programmes and Commissions working on sustainable use issues;
• Promote networking, personal contacts, communication and cross-fertilisation among SULi members and between SULi and the broader IUCN community.
The session will include a brief welcome from the SSC Chair, CEESP Chair and SULi Chair, with networking over drinks.
