Where the first number corresponds to either the number of the General Assembly (GA) or the number of the World Conservation Congress (WCC), and the following number corresponds to the Resolution/Recommendation number. In this example, it is the Resolution/Recommendation number 81 adopted in the third WCC held in Bangkok in 2004.
