World Conservation Monitoring Centre, United Nations Environment Programme
Service Provider DescriptionThe UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre provides information for
policy and action to conserve the living world.
Our programmes concentrate on species, forests, protected areas,
marine, mountains and freshwaters; plus habitats affected by climate
change such as polar regions. We also address the relationship between
trade and the environment and the wider aspects of biodiversity
UNEP-WCMC, in partnership with the public and private sector, is
undertaking a major project in the development of a decentralized
knowledge management system. The system is being developed as Project
Proteus and throughout 2004 and beyond users of this website will see
the impact of the project.
