Integrating Ethics into the Management of Water Ecosystems

Ethical assumptions about how water and water ecosystems (e.g., rivers, lakes, wetlands) should be used constitute powerful drivers of water management and investment strategies. Through a process of "unwrapping" and analyzing the underlying values held by diverse stakeholders, debate can focus on the values directly. But then what? How can we engage with various categories of stakeholders to facilitate a "revaluation" process?

Striped Hyaena in Iran. Status, behavioral ecology and Conservation strategies

Striped hyaena in iran, have not special conservation status. We do not know how many of them exist in Iran. While Population size is a key ecological parameter for understanding the biology and conservation status of a species. I tried cover some gaps of information about the hyaena in Iran such as denning study,that identify their suitable habitats. feeding ecology & their behavioral by direct watch them throughout Iran. Striped hyaena have a special role between all carnivores in Iran. Is there any conflict between the hyaena and the last remains of asiatic cheetahs in Iran?

Global monitoring of biodiversity change: Building the GEO Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON)

Timely and relevant data on biodiversity are critical to the effective conservation and sustainable management of the natural world. These data underpin the scientific assessments that, in turn, inform biodiversity policy and management at the global, national and local levels.

Expériences de la gestion des complexes transfrontaliers en Afrique Centrale : Leçons apprises et défis

La Commission des Forêts d’Afrique Centrale (COMIFAC) a mandaté le Réseau des Aires Protégées d´Afrique Centrale (RAPAC) pour mettre en œuvre l´axe 4 du plan de convergence. Cet axe porte sur l´harmonisation des politiques, législations et cadres institutionnels, la conservation et valorisation de la diversité biologique à travers le renforcement du réseau des aires protégées nationales et la gestion concertée des aires protégées transfrontalières avec leurs zones périphériques.

Global Forest Information Service - Global Forest Related Informationa Sharing Through a Single Gateway

In May 2004, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) agreed that the Global Forest Information Service (GFIS) should become a joint CPF initiative. In response to the request of the CPF, IUFRO, in close collaboration with FAO and CIFOR, prepared a concept paper for the further development of GFIS as a joint CPF initiative. Based on this concept paper the initiative was approved at the 13th Meeting of the CPF on 6th September 2004 in New York. Today GFIS is led by IUFRO, together with FAO, CIFOR, IGRAF and the UNFF Secretariat.

China focus: nature-based solutions to climate change

China is arguably the most important country to addressing climate change. Its efforts at increasing low carbon technology and energy reductions targets are well known, yet China contains a less-often discussed feature that will help it both mitigate and adapt to a changing climate; its tremendously diverse ecosystems. In the face of unparalleled economic growth these ecosystems are increasingly vulnerable. At the same time, the existence of such a diverse ecological base means there is great potential to implement nature-based solutions for addressing climate change in China.

Best Practices and Lessons Learned of the UNEP/GEF Siberian Crane Wetlands Project in I. R. Iran

I think there are many and many common problems btween the nature conservation projects throughout of the world that it will be very good if people to take note to a range of practical experinces and learned lessons (from the same completed projects) before development of new projects and even during impementation of current projects. This would be one of the easiest way which help to prevent and reduce of many potential mistakes practical problems. A persian proverb says: It´s needed (better) two times for living; one time to get experince and one time to live (use those expriences!).

An International Workshop to Develop Key Strategies for the Establishment and Promotion of the Asia-Pacific Biodiversity Observation Network (AP-BON) at Local, National, and Regional Levels

Recently, a global Biodiversity Observation Network, called GEO BON, was initiated under GEO (Group on Earth Observations) and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems). In addition, the regional activities of the Asia-Pacific Biodiversity Observation Network (AP-BON) for the promotion of biodiversity observation and conservation utilizing currently existing networks at national and regional levels were initiated in the region of Asia and the Pacific.

Partnership between ASEAN and Korea towards a sustainable green growth

The ASEAN-Korea Environmental Cooperation Project (AKECOP) has seen growth throughout the years. The Project has gone through a lot of changes since it started its activities in Phase I (July 2000~June 2005) and Phase II (June 2005~June 2008) under the theme "Restoration of Degraded Forest Ecosystem in the Southeast Asian Tropical Region" up to Phase III (July 2008~June 2011) under the theme "Restoration of Degraded Terrestrial and Mangrove Forest Ecosystems in ASEAN Region".
