Building Resilience to Climate Change Impacts-Coastal Southeast Asia

Climate change is a global challenge but a lot can be done at the local level to minimize impacts and capture opportunities. IUCN´s Building Resilience to Climate Change Impacts―Coastal Southeast Asia Project, funded by European Union, aims to increase adaptive capacity of people and the ecosystems on which they depend to cope with the anticipated impacts of climate change and plan for DRR, through sound governance and planning.

Mr. Goodfish, a sustainable seafood programme

The European programme Mr.Goodfish, launched by the World Ocean Network and developed in Spain (Aquarium Finisterrae), France (Nausicaá, Centre National de la Mer) and Italy (Acquario di Genova) aims to preserve seafood resources by suggesting positive buying and consuming decisions so as to ensure that there will still be fish and seashells in the sea tomorrow.

Towards Mediterranean resilience: An adaptative model of governance

In recent times governance has become a matter of increasing interest in Mediterranean affairs particularly with respect to the conservation and management of biodiversity. Although the concept of governance may have various meanings within different contexts, it is important to focus on ways and means for improving the existing prescriptive and enforcement mechanisms for environmental protection of the Mediterranean terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems.

Fisheries, biodiversity conservation, and food security

In the future, food from the sea is going to be of increasing importance to global food security. Ways have to be found to meet these needs that are compatible with conservation of biodiversity.
At present, decisions are made separately in conservation and sectoral and this does not facilitate integration, coordination or even common understanding. The risk is that both fields of governance miss their targets.

Establishing a regional organization for managing the aquatic ecosystems of East Asia

East Asia is a very densely populated area where one third of the world’s population resides; most of them reside in river basins and coastal areas where population and economic growth have been fastest, threatening food security and the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems, especially in coastal and estuarine areas where freshwater and marine ecosystems actively interact. The rivers and adjacent seas of East Asia are productive enough to support ca. 40% of the global fisheries yield and to account for ca.

IUCN´s Flagship Knowledge Products: working towards technical and operational linkages

IUCN´s knowledge products include The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (which will be linked to the Global Invasive Species Database); The WDPA (with UNEP WCMC); the developing IUCN Red List of Ecosystems and Key Biodiversity Areas. Each of these are at a different stage of development in terms of the conceptual / technical side, the tools for inputting data (Species Information Service), websites and databases. As IUCN moves into the next Programme period it is important to determine how best to further develop these products and make operational links between them.

Oil and gas decommissioning as a catalyst to enhance ecosystem function

Recently a project started that by bringing stakeholders around the North Sea together, aims to instigate a fundamental review and subsequent change of policy in determining the interaction between people, planet and prosperity in the region.

Gobernanza Marina: Reflexiones sobre conservación, derechos de acceso al mar y resiliencia social y cultural

Se vincularán los temas de derechos de acceso a recursos naturales (pesqueros) y las fortalezas culturales y sociales de comunidades costeras como factores de resiliencia importantes para una conservación del mar que garantice la equidad, la seguridad alimentaria y la reducción de la pobreza en Centroamérica, México y el Caribe. Nuestra visión es que para conservar el mar, no hay que dejar de usarlo, y que sus beneficios deben de ser garantizados para las comunidades relacionadas con él y sus recursos.

Corridors, Canyons And Cetaceans: Ocean Management Initiatives For The Deep-Sea Habitats Of The Coral Triangle

Indonesia is positioned at the nexus of two oceans. Its diverse deep-sea habitats include migration corridors, seamounts, canyons, trenches and upwelling zones that are of regional importance within the Indo-Pacific, yet remain poorly known. From 1998-2011 visual and acoustic surveys and research have been conducted on blue whales, sperm whales and other oceanic cetaceans.
