IUCN National Committee of the Netherlands (IUCN NL) is the platform for the 35 IUCN members based in the Netherlands. IUCN NL is a bridge between social organizations, the government, business and science and focuses on all kinds of subjects pertaining to the struggle against the loss in biodiversity.
In collaboration with the same partners IUCN NL applies this knowledge to come to a constructive Dutch contribution to solving global issues in the fields of nature and the environment. IUCN NL sets up projects in which the Dutch share in the increase (or reduction) of biodiversity is studied. IUCN NL also provides financial support to social organizations – mainly in developing countries – that focus on the conservation of nature and the improvement of the environment in relation to poverty reduction.
