Developing the CEESP
for 2013-2016
CEESP Executive Committee Meeting
New Delhi, India,
9-11 November 2011
International Union for the Conservation of Nature
Commission on Environmental, Economic, and
Social Policy
With a Mandate
Adopted by the IUCN Membership at the
World Conservation Congress
1. CEESP Vision
A world where equity is at the root of a dynamic
harmony between people and nature, as well as
among peoples. A world of diversity, productivity
and integrity of natural systems. A world in
which production and consumption patterns
are sustainable. A world where cultural diversity
is intertwined with biological diversity and both
generate abundant and sustainable livelihoods
2. CEESP Mission
To contribute to the IUCN Mission by providing
insights and expertise and promoting policies
and action to harmonize the conservation of
nature with the crucial socioeconomic and
cultural concerns of human communities—
such as livelihoods, human rights and
responsibilities, human development, security,
equity, and the fair and effective governance of
natural resources.

Key Messages
Conservation is a western concept – not relevant to all peoples.
Sharing power means the right to share responsibility for lands and
Conservation gains are not dependent on state involvement.
Wisdom comes from contact with nature - need full application of Free,
Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) - not just consultation.
Governments need to more actively impose and enforce rules on
extractive industries' activities.
Biofuel development should not take food producing agricultural land.
We need to reshape and rethink economics - there is a diversity of forms
of economic organization.
Build intercultural dialogue on processes that give marginalised actors
more voice and communicate in multiple ways for different audiences.
Lands, territories and natural resources are an extension of the people,
and must be cared for for the good of the collective people because it is a
responsibility and not because a profit can be derived from it.
The time has come for a “new conservation ethic”,
one that is accountable, celebrates cultural diversity,
cares for species and ecosystems and supports civil
society movements, indigenous peoples and local
communities to bring a more socially and
environmentally just world into being.
The new conservation ethic responds to the
specificities and histories of local places by
responding to the visions and ideas of local
communities and indigenous peoples specific
context and relies on local knowledge and decisions.
