Framework for Forming Intergenerational Partnerships for Sustainability

The Framework is intended to provide individuals, organizations, business, and governments of all ages with guidance for forming IPS. Specifically, it is referenced in the Resolution for IPS as a supporting document. The Framework is a living document, having been through several iterations, below.

The Framework is structured around four key questions:
  1. What is an IPS?
  2. Why form an IPS?
  3. What principles frame and guide IPS?
  4. What are some possible mechanisms for forming IPS?

The IUCN Draft

The "IUCN Draft" of the Framework, generated through a workshop at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Barcelona, Spain in October 2008, made the CSD-16 Draft specific to the IUCN family. It focuses on recommendations for implementing IPS for the IUCN Council, Secretariat, Members, and Commissions, complimenting and supporting the IUCN Resolution for IPS.
