Divisions of the CIC
A changed political environment and ever increasing pressure on hunting and wildlife conservation as well as new fundamental paradigm shifts require modern approaches of a pro-active and leading global hunting organization.
In order to adapt the CIC to the new challenges that hunting faces in the 21st century and to improve the performance of the CIC as a professional international organisation and a key-player in the area of hunting, the activities of the previous Commissions and Working Groups have been streamlined into a structure of three Divisions: “Policy and Law”, “Applied Science” and “Culture”. This new structure was adopted unanimously at the CIC General Assembly in 2008 in Marrakech. The CIC’s objective is though also to maintain its character as close knit group of compassionate people, engaged in assuring the future of hunting.
Division Policy and Law
In today’s world hunting is regarded by many people as a remnant from the past. CIC has here, with our motto “For the sustainable use of wildlife”, an important role and mission to fulfill. The message is that hunting and sustainable and wise use of natural resources is part of the ecology on the planet Earth.
Hunting is a very important part of wildlife management, also a guarantee for the survival of many species, giving wildlife a value. This has been clearly demonstrated for several species in many parts of the world.
