Expanding capacity building efforts to enhance protected area management effectiveness in the Asian context

Building capacity for effective protected area management is a critical challenge for biodiversity conservation in Asia and beyond. Continuous change on a global scale has led to increasingly complex management scenarios that demand a broader base of skills for today’s conservation professionals.

Our Protected Planet - Celebrating progress on global protected area targets

Protected areas have for centuries been a tried and tested method for the conservation of nature. Today we know that well-managed protected areas lead not only to healthy ecosystems and refuge to threatened species, but also provide multiple benefits to people, including a wide range of services such as clean water provision, food security, climate regulation, disaster risk reduction and additional services. This event will look at progress and celebrate success in protected areas through the launch of the inaugural Protected Planet Report.

Natural Solutions: protected areas helping people cope with climate change

This session will highlight the role of protected areas in providing natural solutions to climate change adaptation and mitigation. Several key publications will be launched, emphasising how protected areas can contribute to national and local climate change strategies.

Implementation of restoration on degraded terrestrial and mangrove ecosystems in South East Asia

Restoration of degraded ecosystems and community forest help increase the resilience of local people by improving their additional incomes such as appropriate incentives or rewards for managing forest sustainably.

Engaging business for conservation

Considering business impacts and dependencies on biodiversity, there is an urgent need for the conservation community to engage with business. This conservation campus session is aimed at conservation organizations and, in particular IUCN members, that wish to engage business in delivering conservation goals. The session will provide guidance on how to set up and run engagements with progressive businesses. NGOs with experience in such engagements as well as businesses working with conservation organizations will share their experiences and recommendations.

SOS Happy Hour - Saving wildlife - yes we can!

Wildlife generates interest and arouses our passion which is demonstrated by the huge popularity of zoos or botanical gardens visited worldwide. Species have the power to communicate; their conservation is portrayed through wonderful photos, amazing stories and dedicated, driven individuals working with local communities.
