Marine

Antarctica and the Southern Ocean – celebrating a unique place on Earth and discussing activities helping to conserve it

During this session pictures and videos from the Last Ocean documentary from Peter Young about the Ross Sea will be shown.
Other activities from partner organizations will be briefly introduced (quick-fire rounds), e.g. Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as proposed by the Antarctic Ocean Alliance.
The audience will then have the opportunity to discuss the presented activities and information in an informal setting.

Coastal and Marine Issues in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean

ESPAÑOL ABAJO

This activity will have two sessions:

1. Strengthening youth voices in marine conservation: Supporting the development of local leadership and triggering action for a sustainable future. 11:00 – 12:00

This activity will have the participation of young people from coastal communities in Mexico and Central America. They are linked to fishing and will present their opinions and experiences in subjects such as:

Towards a strengthened regional partnership for marine conservation in West Africa : PRCM

The objective of this event is to announce the launching of the Regional Partnership for Coastal and Marine Conservation in West Africa, together with the main partners (IUCN, WWF, International Foundation for the BAnc d'Arguin - FIBA, Wetlands International - WI, the Sub Regional Fisheries Commmission - CSRP, The MAVA Foundation, Dutch Cooperation, others).

Voices of the North

Videos about the Wildlife, Habitat, Community, Art and Culture of Canada's North, from the point of view of people who live in the North. Interactive presentations will be provided. "Education through adventure" marine expedition video clips will also be included that feature the Sail for Wildlife Migration of the Humpback Whale presented by CWF Learning Institute Fellow Dr. Yves Jean, the Trans-Atlantic Quebec City-St. Malo Sailing Race and the Canadian Wildlife Federation Salish Sea Expedition led by CWF Youth Spokesperson Olympic gold medal rower Adam Kreek. Join us for refreshments and luncheon snacks.

What's the buzz? Uniting for Marine Adaptation

This is a creative, think-tank / dialogue styled event where community representatives, IUCN staff, conservation scientists, NGO people, researchers and government representatives get to share ideas with each other on what IUCN is, could and should be doing on adaptation in the coastal, marine and reef environment. The format is one-on-one exchanges and small group discussions, captured using meta-cards, and then a summary of the main themes emerging are captured on display panels.

An inter-cultural dialogue on Marine Protected Areas – can locally managed marine areas provide a foundation for national marine PA networks?

Enjoy some island hospitality and an opportunity to share your thoughts on marine conservation. Join us for this intercultural dialogue between communities and conservationists on the role of Locally Managed Marine Areas as a way of developing national MPA frameworks and meeting CBD targets.

Vers un réseau d’AMP sur la façade atlantique de l’Afrique pour la biodiversité et la gestion des pêches

En Afrique de l'Ouest, les partenaires du Programme Régional de Conservation de la zone Côtière et Marine - PRCM ont accompagné les Etats dans la mise en place officielle d'un Réseau Régional d'Aires Marines Protégées en Afrique de l'Ouest - RAMPAO.
Les pays du Golfe de Guinée ont réalisé beaucoup moins de progrès au cours des dernières décennies.

The Role of Partnerships and Size in Scaling Up Marine Protection Efforts Across the Globe

The past two decades have seen both an increase in the area of the world’s ocean under protection and a trend toward the establishment of large-scale and partnership-driven marine protected areas (MPAs). Recent calls from the international marine conservation community recommend a target of protecting at least 10% of all of the world’s marine and coastal ecoregions by 2020. The international community also notes that with only approximately 1% of the world’s oceans currently protected, effective partnerships and large-scale MPAs will both play a critical role to achieve this target.

Conserver les écosystèmes et aménager les territoires littoraux pour réduire les risques de catastrophes naturelles

Ce workshop aborde des questions liées à l’avenir des zones côtières face aux dégradations environnementales engendrées par un développement mal planifié ou maitrisé, associées aux risques liés au changement climatique.

Marine Conservation in Asia and the Pacific: Scoping Pathways for International Dialogue

Over the next decades, climate change and other factors will cause greater stress on the environment and will increase conflicts among states and groups within these states regarding access to and use of natural resources. Trade interests, control over resources and pollution are issues to be solved in dialogue to prevent conflicts, loss of biodiversity and environmental degradation. Security is closely linked to the IUCN core program area of ‘sharing nature’s benefits equitably’.
