IUCN Green List of Protected Areas
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Green List is a global campaign for successful nature conservation. At its heart is the Green List Sustainability Standard that provides a global benchmark for how to meet the environmental challenges of the 21st century. The IUCN Green List offers locally relevant expert guidance to help achieve fair and effective nature conservation results in protected and conserved areas. 
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Green List is a global program that aims to improve the contribution of equitably governed and effectively managed protected areas to nature conservation and sustainable development. It provides a benchmark for progress towards effective and equitable management of protected areas and offers guidance on best practices for nature conservation.
The Green List Sustainability Standard is at the heart of the program and provides a global benchmark for meeting the environmental challenges of the 21st century. The Green List program seeks to increase the number of protected and conserved areas that are effectively and equitably managed, and to recognize and reward such efforts through a certification process. It is designed to be locally relevant and to provide expert guidance for achieving fair and effective nature conservation outcomes in protected and conserved areas.
