China focus: nature-based solutions to climate change

China is arguably the most important country to addressing climate change. Its efforts at increasing low carbon technology and energy reductions targets are well known, yet China contains a less-often discussed feature that will help it both mitigate and adapt to a changing climate; its tremendously diverse ecosystems. In the face of unparalleled economic growth these ecosystems are increasingly vulnerable. At the same time, the existence of such a diverse ecological base means there is great potential to implement nature-based solutions for addressing climate change in China.

Transparencia: Un valioso activo en la gestión sostenible de pesquerías marinas

Este Café del Conocimiento se organiza para dar continuidad a la Resolución 4.030, “Trabajar por la transparencia para lograr la sostenibilidad de las pesquerías”, aprobada durante el 4º Congreso Mundial de la Naturaleza realizado en la ciudad de Barcelona en el año 2008. Durante este Café, conversaremos sobre el valor de la transparencia para la gestión de pesquerías sostenibles e intercambiaremos ideas respecto al posible desarrollo e implementación de un “transparentómetro” --una herramienta sencilla que creemos que podría servir para medir e incentivar la transparencia en la investigación y la administración de las pesquerías de la región latinoamericana.
