Video: Mapping a Path to Protecting 30% of the Planet by 2030

By Katie Olson

How can we conserve a minimum 30 percent of land and water ecosystems for environmental action by 2030?

Conservationist James Hardcastle asserts that Indigenous knowledge will be essential. Hardcastle and a team at the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) use geographic information system (GIS) technology to pinpoint conservation challenges, prioritize protection areas, and harness maps to shape effective conservation strategies.

IUCN is energized by the targets of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework to reduce environmental harm and achieve sustainable resource use. Learn how IUCN scientists work globally alongside Indigenous tribes and other local voices to assert the truth about nature conservation—promoting standards, guidance, and best practices.
