CMP members have officially approved an updated version of its Threats and Actions Classifications!

Published in 2008 in Conservation Biology, the IUCN-CMP Threat and Action Classifications (Version 1.0) have been used to classify tens of thousands of species, projects, and sites. These classifications have provided a much-needed framework to classify conservation threats and actions using a common language – thus, setting the foundation for sharing experiences and learning from one another.

As useful as Version 1.0 has been, practice revealed gaps and areas needing clarification and improvement. Version 2.0 incorporates experiences from several organizations and individuals using the classifications across hundreds of projects.
