The UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre provides information for
policy and action to conserve the living world. The Centre's activities
include assessment and early warning studies in forest, dryland,
freshwater and marine ecosystems. Research on endangered species and
biodiversity indicators provide policy-makers with vital knowledge on
global trends in conservation and sustainable use of wildlife and their
habitats. Extensive use is made of geographic information systems and
other analytical technologies that help to visualise trends, patterns
and emerging priorities for conservation action. UNEP-WCMC does this
work through three divisions:

1. Information Services: facilitating access to information on
biological diversity, through Enquiries and Publications, Library, and
Electronic Communications Services;
2. Assessment and Early Warning: assessing the status, value and
management of biological diversity;
3. Conventions and Policy Support: working with conventions and
organisations, and providing capacity building and information
management services.
