UNEP - WCMC
WCMC is a UK charity, based in Cambridge, which supports the United Nations Environment Programme. We work in collaboration with UNEP, under the banner of UNEP-WCMC. Our mission is to evaluate and highlight the many values of biodiversity and put authoritative biodiversity knowledge at the centre of decision-making.
UNEP-WCMC confronts the challenges faced by our world's biodiversity with knowledge, innovation and leadership. In partnership with UN Environment and based in Cambridge, the UK's conservation capital, we connect science, policy and society. Our access and influence empowers decision makers to create positive and sustainable impact for people and nature.
Our team is made up of experts in biodiversity and ecosystem services, social scientists, communications experts, ecological modellers, economists, policy analysts, lawyers, GIS specialists, data managers and software developers.
2019 is UNEP-WCMC's 40th anniversary. We continue to build on the achievements and impacts of the last four decades, bringing innovation and insights to the international policy community at this critical time for our planet.
