Conservation participative de la biodiversité et développement faiblement émissif en carbone d´Ecovillages pilotes à proximité des aires protégées du Sénégal

La plupart des villages ruraux du Sénégal sont pauvres et luttent pour s´en sortir. Ils ont pour cela, besoin de solutions qui leur permettent de développer et d´investir dans de nouvelles formes durables d´accès à l´énergie et d´amélioration de leurs moyens de subsistance basés à la fois sur la recherche d´une croissance économique soutenue et d´une empreinte écologique faible.

Gestion partagée d´écosystèmes transfrontaliers : l´exemple de la Réserve de Biosphère Transfrontalière du Delta du Fleuve Sénégal

Le Delta du fleuve Sénégal constitue une entité biophysique et écologique transfrontalière entre le Sénégal et la Mauritanie. Or, les interventions, de part et d´autre du fleuve, étaient localisées dans le Parc National des Oiseaux du Djoudj (PNOD), au Sénégal et dans le Parc National de Diawling (PND), en Mauritanie.

Dryland Biodiversity: Mobilizing the Union for Conservation through Sustainable Land Management

Desertification, or “land degradation in the drylands”, is a major global environmental threat that affects the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people. The process of desertification is also closely related to dryland biodiversity loss. Dryland Biodiversity is widely valued, but often unconsciously, and development policies frequently put this biodiversity at risk. Low investment in these areas contributes to a paucity of data that leaves a major gap in understanding the risks and threats to dryland biodiversity.

The Guadix Basin (Granada, Spain): two million years of geodiversity underpinning biodiversity.

The Guadix Basin (Granada, Spain) presents an exceptional Quaternary paleontological record of large mammals and a unique sedimentary record of climate and paleoenvironmental changes which are the basis for an innovative set of actions in this Mediterranean region of southwest Europe. The poster shows how well-planned management allows for the conservation and proper public use of highly-vulnerable and non-renewable paleobiological resources and modern semiarid badlands, both of them unique for Europe.

International cooperation for the mitigation of adverse impacts of Asian Dust aerosols

The occurrence frequencies and the intensities of dust and sand storms (DSS) from many arid and semi-arid regions, including Northern China, Central Asia and Mongolia, are in the increasing trend due to the rapid desertification caused by different reasons, climate change and unsustainable land uses such as overgrazing, heavy farming, deforestation for other uses.

Large Carnivores Initiative in West and Central Africa

There is a large mammal crisis in West and Central Africa, which has largely gone unnoticed to the international conservation community (Craigie et al, 2010). Large carnivores are keystone species. This workshop intends to share knowledge and mobilise IUCN members to take action for ecosystem restoration, with a focus on the dry savannah zone, using carnivores as ecosystem embassadors. Special focus will be on stakeholder involvement including policy makers, local governments, private sector, women and indigenous communities.
