Since 2008, many experts from around the world have been actively participating in the development of the categories and criteria for the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems (RLE). One of the latest products of this work is the publication of the IUCN’s "Guidelines for the application of IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Categories and Criteria." This document provides a theoretical, exemplified, updated and documented guide for the systematic application of the RLE’s categories and criteria.
In November 2015, the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) team gathered in Melbourne, Australia, along with a global team of experts in ecosystem conservation, biodiversity policy and conservation action. The meeting was hosted by Deakin University, and was co-funded by Deakin, the IUCN, MAVA Foundation, and the State Government of Victoria. The objective of the meeting was to build a strategic plan for rolling out the IUCN RLE globally, to ensure adequate support and capacity for robust risk assessment and high quality outcomes.
