What is IUCN?

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the world’s largest and oldest nature conservation entity. It is a membership-based International Organisation that counts governments and civil society in its ranks, including United Nations agencies, Government Ministries throughout the world, global advocacy groups such as WWF, as well as grassroots organisations for rural communities and indigenous peoples (over 1300 member organisations in over 160 countries). 

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and the evaluation of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) natural world heritages sites are two successful global programmes of IUCN that contribute to the long term sustainability and conservation on our planet. Now the IUCN is embarking on a new global flagship initiative: the “IUCN Green List of Protected and Conserved Areas Programme” (“IUCN Green List”) here-after, a certification process that will be blockchain enabled to improve the management performance for conservation success in protected and conserved areas across the globe. At the heart of the programme is the IUCN Green List Standard: a new global performance benchmark for protected areas in the 21st Century.

UCN to develop the world’s first ‘cryptoconservation’ application for nature conservation – the IUCN Green List Standard Token will be launched on Sunday 26th

What is IUCN Green List Standard Token?

This week, IUCN officially approved the Green List Standard, a global benchmark to improve nature conservation and biodiversity in protected areas. The Swiss PORINI Foundation and IUCN will now release the Green List Standard Token (GLS) to help link credible evaluation and verification of conservation success to a financing mechanism.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) has a new flagship Initiative, the Green List of Protected and Conserved Areas, a global Standard and certification Programme which aims to improve biodiversity in protected areas, such as national parks and nature reserves. IUCN is present in over 160 countries, and will be implementing the standard in more than 1,000 sites by 2020.

To keep track of the global success of the program, IUCN will develop a blockchain-enabled process, using an innovative technology that will give the possibility to all Token holders to participate and to see what has been achieved in real time. Participating ‘Green List’ candidate sites will have their progress mapped on blockchain. Green List Standard (GLS) Tokens will give access to this new strategy and at the same time the possibility to finance the program in a fair and transparent manner. Every GLS Token will result in a positive impact on biodiversity, which is the building-block for sustainability on our planet.
