About International Whaling Commission

The International Whaling Commission (IWC) is the global body charged with the conservation of whales and the management of whaling.  The IWC currently has 88 member governments from countries all over the world.

All members are signatories to the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling.  This Convention is the legal framework which established the IWC in 1946.

What we did for them

IFC was engaged to work with the IWC Intersessional Correspondence Group on Strengthening Finance to identify external funding sources, which could be accessed by the IWC to support the vital work of their Conservation Committee. This included Trusts and Foundations, governmental and multilateral funds (including the EU and UN) throughout the world.

“IFC provided a very professional service. They brought in wide ranging experience of the most successful fundraising strategies, researching the brief carefully so they could tailor their advice to suit our specific needs.”  

Nicola Clarke, Chair of the IWC Intersessional Correspondence Group on Strengthening Financing
