Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management (CPW)

The Collaborative Partnership on Sustainable Wildlife Management (CPW) is a voluntary partnership of 14 international organizations with substantive mandates and programmes to promote the sustainable use and conservation of wildlife resources. IUFRO has been one of the 14 partner organizations since CPW's establishment in 2013.
