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.

The Locally Managed Marine Area Network - Keeping it Simple and Sustainable

The Poster features the work and impacts of the Locally-Managed Marine Area (LMMA) Network. Although focused in the Pacific region, our experience and success has inspired and informed community-based conservation and resource management networks and initiatives world-wide. The Network encompasses communities, local and international NGOs, government agencies and academia, including a number of IUCN members.

Monitoring of Tidal Flats and Waterbirds in New Songdo City, ROK, by Local Students

We work in New Songdo City, Incheon City, built on recently reclaimed tidal flats. At Chadwick International School, our seventh grade students are studying the effects of ongoing reclamation of tidal flats on waterbirds, in particular the locally breeding but globally Endangered Black-faced Spoonbill, Platalea minor. We are collaborating with a local NGO, the Incheon Black Faced Spoonbill Network (IBFSN) to perform year round avian surveys of three waterbird habitats, including the remaining Songdo tidal flats.

Plaidoyer pour la conservation des cétacés et la promotion de l´écotourisme baleinier (Whale watching) en Afrique

Depuis la confirmation de la présence des baleines proche des cotes béninoises par les scientifiques en 2000, Nature Tropicale ONG organise d´Août à Novembre de chaque année des expéditions en mer pour mieux étudier ces espèces. Ces actions sont associées à des plaidoyers à travers le développement de l´écotourisme baleinier ou "Whale watching". La période d´observation est celle de la reproduction des baleines jubartes ou à bosse dans le Golfe de Guinée. Elles y viennent pour mettre bas et apprendre à leurs bébés les premières adaptations à la vie.

Sauvegarde communautaire des tortues marines au Bénin et en Afrique de l´Ouest

L´un des défis pour un développement durable est la protection de la diversité biologique et sa gestion rationnelle. De nos jours plusieurs espèces animales et de plantes sont en danger de disparition. Les tortues marines sont particulièrement menacées au Bénin et dans tous les pays côtiers de l´Afrique de l´Ouest pour diverses raisons dont la pauvreté ignorance des populations et la pollution marine.

Business & biodiversity: the role and the potential of the tourism industry

Traditionally the tourism industry has had a negative impact upon biodiversity, in particular along coasts. Except for ecotourism, the tourism industry in general has had very little involvement in the conservation of its main resource: landscape, nature, the sea, beaches. While the debate on corporate social and environmental responsibility is widely present, we should find ways in order to involve the tourism industry in biodiversity conservation and in the regeneration of natural capital (marine and coastal ecosystems). After all, that is the base of the tourism business.

Marine World Heritage: Protecting The Crown Jewels of the Ocean

Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. The mission of marine World Heritage is to protect all potential and existing marine areas of Outstanding Universal Value to ensure they will thrive for generations to come. The 1972 World Heritage Convention has a huge, unexplored potential to improve effective conservation of the most valuable ocean areas.

What is Asian system of Marine Protected Area? 

The importance of marine conservation is becoming higher and higher recently in global scale. To halt and reverse the degradation of marine ecosystems, the decision was adopted by COP10 of the CBD(Conservation of Biological Diversity) ; at least 10% of all the world’s marine and coastal areas should be protected by 2020. Also WSSD (World Summit on Sustainable Development) stated the need to develop MPA networks by 2012.

Business and IUCN join forces: lessons learned from western gray whale conservation

The western gray whale population is listed as endangered in the Russian Federation Red Data Book and as critically endangered in the IUCN Red List. Little is known about its breeding grounds or migration routes but the main feeding grounds lie off north-eastern Sakhalin Island, in the Russian Far East.
