IUCN and WWF forge tiger conservation agreement



November 2013: IUCN’s Global Protected Areas Programme and WWF have signed an agreement to develop the IUCN Green List of Protected Areas in a bid to promote tiger conservation through the WWF’s Tigers Alive initiative.

The IUCN Green List of Protected Areas aims to recognise successful conservation endeavours by providing benchmark standards for equitable governance and effective management of protected areas. It is currently being developed in collaboration with pilot countries and jurisdictions including Korea, Colombia – Amazonas, Kenya, Italy, France and New South Wales, Australia. A coalition of partners, represented by WWF, will in turn apply the IUCN Green List criteria in the accreditation process for high-performing tiger protected areas in tiger range states.
