UNEP-WCMC is the specialist biodiversity assessment arm of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) based in Cambridge, UK. UNEP works to encourage sustainable development through sound environmental practices, and has an extensive portfolio of activities around biodiversity. To help deliver these, it collaborates with WCMC, a not-for-profit organization with staff that includes dozens of specialists in the fields of biodiversity and ecosystem services, as well as social science, economics, law and information technology. Working with partners worldwide, the Centre provides objective, scientifically rigorous products and services to help decision makers learn about the value of biodiversity and apply this knowledge. They not only collate and verify data on biodiversity and ecosystem services but also analyse and interpret it, making the results available to their partners in accessible forms.
