The IUCN Green List of well-managed protected areas including National Parks is a new and progressive global initiative that celebrates the success of effective protected areas, and encourages the sharing of that success so that other protected areas can also reach high standards. More effective protected areas lead to greater benefits for humans and nature.


The IUCN Green List will be developed from 2012 to 2014, with a full launch scheduled for the 2014 IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. A number of partners have already joined the pilot phase to help test and refine the process. They include Parques Nacionales Naturales in Colombia, the Korean National Park Service and the CA/TS (Conservation Assured/Tiger Standards) project being carried out by WWF in tiger range countries.
