Part of the official documents for the 2016 Congress issued on 1 June 2016 in accordance with Rule 45 are six Motions pertaining to the governance of IUCN. On the recommendation of the Motions Working Group, they are posted here for discussion until 3 July 2016. As required by Rule 45bis (d), these Motions are tabled for (continued) discussion and vote during the Members’ Assembly to be held in Hawaii from 6 to 10 September 2016. All six Motions propose amendments to the Statutes or the Rules of Procedure and are therefore subject to specific procedures for their submission and adoption as defined in, respectively, Articles 104 to 108 and Article 29 of the Statutes. The purpose of the electronic discussion prior to the Congress is to collect a first round of comments and proposals from IUCN Members by way of preparing the continued discussion and vote on these Motions during the Members’ Assembly.
