As the Union will launch its new IUCN Programme 2013-2016 in a rapidly changing world, Council intends to engage with the Members and Commissions of IUCN in a discussion about how to ensure an effective constituent structure and influential engagement of key actors in society to deliver on IUCN´s vision and mission. This discussion will focus on the nature of IUCN´s constituent parts and the qualities we need in the future in our membership and membership structures, in the Commissions, in the Secretariat and in Council. It will similarly address how the Union can better engage and influence other key sectors of society to have a greater impact in achieving conservation goals. In other words, how to ensure that IUCN´s governance structures and engagement strategies enable all parts of IUCN - Members, National and Regional Committees, the Commissions, the Secretariat and Council – to optimize their contributions to achieving the mission of IUCN.
