Federal Agency for Nature Conservation
The process to elaborate this Standard thus far has been funded by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation / Bundesamt für Naturschutz (BfN) in association with The World Conservation Union (IUCN), WWF Germany, and TRAFFIC, with substantial contributions of time and expertise from members of an international Advisory Group.
