During the last few months, the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management has been working on a new website to gather information on the development of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. The goal of this website is to allow public participation on the development, implementation and monitoring of a global standard to assess the risk of collapse of ecosystems, which can be applied at local, regional and global levels.
