During the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress, ASU's Center for Biodiversity Outcomes became an official partner of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species.
The Red List is the world’s standard for quantifying species extinction risk and is used around the world to inform policy, planning and conservation action.
Through this partnership, ASU joins a group of global leaders charged with devising strategies for species conservation and biodiversity decision-making. It is one of only three universities in the world to join forces with IUCN Red List to help guide the scope and application of scientific data.
