Ecopsychology Camp: Cultivating Ecological and Psychological Resiliency

Ecopsychology is a transdisciplinary field of inquiry predicated on a belief that humanity is a part of nature. It bridges the sciences and humanities in order to stimulate insight, creativity and imagination; foster a mature, empathic and ethical awareness; utilize ecological, biological and psychological principles essential to sustainability; and recognizes that all of life's systems: personal, social, ecological, economic, and mechanistic are interdependent and linked through multiple synergistic relationships.

Ecopsychology Camp will explore the human ecosystem through five main ecological principles that will provide images, metaphors and ideas for how we can address plaguing issues in culture and conservation with more innovative, creative and ecosystemic solutions.

Food and Ecological Security: The Role of Public and Private Sector in Supporting Ecosystem Resilience

Food security is top on the global agenda. World population and food consumption are still on the increase adding more pressure to the food supply system. These trends of demography dynamics and consumption patterns, combined with the threat of climate change and irreversible ecosystem service degradation, would lead to higher uncertainties regarding our current dominating food production models.

Towards a collaborative partnership on sustainable wildlife management

The collaboration is an innovative way of organizing actions of various stakeholders to reach one common goal – achieve sustainability in the utilization of wildlife resources for the benefit of nature and humans. Each partner has its own field of expertise and by sharing this know-how and providing reliable data to the decision makers, the common challenges can be recognized and objectives will be reached more efficiently. There is a connection between ecosystem management and services, food security and greening the world economy, such as in the bushmeat case.

Building Resilience through the Conservation and Use of Agricultural Biodiversity: The UNEP-GEF Contribution

Current agricultural practices are regarded as one of the most significant drivers of biodiversity loss. At the same time, the goal of achieving global food security remains a long way off. The world desperately needs an agricultural production system that is both resilient and contributes to achieving food security. Agricultural biodiversity will play a central role in achieving these twin objectives. By conserving and harnessing agricultural biodiversity, food and agriculture production can contribute to sustaining healthy biodiverse ecosystems.

Beyond Jargon II The Next Generation of Communication Strategies for a Sustainable World

In the face of 21st century information overload and opportunity, how can we use high-impact communication strategies to reach key audiences and drive conservation action? And how can IUCN contribute by supporting communications partnerships that move beyond the normal conservation jargon?

Biodiversity and Development along the Congo River: Bridging more than rivers

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity, a team made up of 67 Belgian, Congolese and international scientists set off on an expedition along the Congo River. Natural and social scientists as well as health experts made their way along a 1000 km stretch of this mighty river, from Kisangani to Bumba and back, to study biodiversity and development issues along the river and in the forests of the Congo basin.

Conserving biodiversity across 1/9 OF THE EARTH

WWF-Russia together with more than 300 specialists carried out a gap-analysis of the existing federal PAs system of the Russian Federation. This analysis is the first of its kind for Russia, in which a unified scientific and methodological approach was used, taking into account all available sources of information on biological diversity and protected areas of Russia. Special attention is paid to the role of the network of federal protected areas in longterm conservation of rare and valuable species.
