Global Commons Initiative Working Meeting

The Global Commons initiative organizations convene at IIASA to plan the work ahead.

The Global Commons initiative was set up by GEF, IIASA, IUCN, SRC, WEF and WRI in 2016. It is a movement to regenerate our Global Commons: the land, seas and atmosphere we share, and the ecosystems and species they host. Further partner organizations are currently We Mean Business, WBCSD, Arup. The Value Web acts as the facilitator.
