The pattern and occurrence of marine benthic harpacticoid copepods depending on habitats

The small animal group, marine benthic harpacticoid copepods are one of the most dominat taxon in meiofauna. However the taxon is still poorly known to world, there are many possibilities to discover new taxa. We want to introduce the animal and its importance, and to present biodiversity depending on various habitats.

Optimising CREMAs for Livelihood and Biodiversity Sustainability

Ghana adopted the establishment and development of Community Resource Management Areas (CREMAs) as an integrated land use management approach to securing biodiversity and livelihoods in protected and off-reserve areas in 2000. Since then, government and civil society in the forestry sector have made conscious efforts to optimize the functions and structures of CREMAs to meet the policy aims of the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission Ghana.

Movilizando el conocimiento: Un aporte regional al manejo integral de los humedales de la Cuenca del Plata

Este evento propone generar un espacio de intercambio de experiencias y conocimientos en relación a las problemáticas ambientales, sociales y económicas que afectan la integridad de los humedales de la Cuenca del Plata, la más grande de Sudamérica después de la del Amazonas.

Re-establishing an ecologically healthy relationship between nature and culture - the Society for Ecological Restoration

Ecological restoration is a powerful strategy for reversing biodiversity loss, increasing the provision of ecosystem services, and contributing to sustainable livelihoods. What makes restoration uniquely valuable is its inherent capacity to provide people with the opportunity not only to repair ecological damage, but also to improve the human condition (SER/IUCN 2004).

Gestión de territorio: la participación privada en la sostenibilidad del paisaje cultural

Las actividades extractivas cuentan con la gran oportunidad de ser actores relevantes en la gestión del territorio, como espacio geográfico, político, social y cultural para beneficio de su entorno natural. La responsabilidad social es generar un ambiente propicio al diálogo y al desarrollo local en igualdad de condiciones para el poblador local, colaborando en la conservación de su cultura, su paisaje y su diversidad de ecosistemas: montaña, agua, humedales, páramos.

Enhancing the resilience of antelopes to human threats: from plan to action

The Antelope Specialist Group (ASG) of the SSC/IUCN is very much concerned with the pressing need for action in preserving antelopes in general. Antelopes are subject to a number of surveys for assessing their conservation status. However, "counting antelopes does not save them". The ASG would like to take advantage of this knowledge cafe for addressing the specific issue of how to transform recommendations into action.

Possible threatening impacts of climate change to wetland ecosystem and appropriate countermeasures

Climate change is now widely recognized as the major environmental problem facing the globe. Natural disasters occurred by impacts of climate change cause a huge losses of life and property and the incidence is on the rise. Climate change affects not only human society, but also environment around us. Wetland ecosystem is one of the most significant habitat for hundreds of plants and animals, but it is considered to be highly vulnerable to any environmental changes. Although enormous efforts have been made in various ways, it is not sufficient to deal with the impact of climate change.

Satellite Images for Conservation: A painless introduction using TerraLook

In this course you will first be introduced to satellite images and how they can be useful for conservation. Then, using the simple TerraLook software, a series of small projects will allow you to explore these uses on your own. TerraLook makes easy-to-use jpeg images available, for free, from anywhere on Earth, and provides a friendly tool to work with them. Current and historical images, back to the 1970s, make it easy to look for and document change.

What role will the implementation of TEEB play in conservation efforts?

“There is an urgent need to incorporate ecosystem values into policy and national accounting systems… Ecosystem values must be a cornerstone of IUCN’s work”, as indicated in The IUCN Programme 2013-16 .

The idea of mainstreaming nature’s values is becoming a priority objective across institutions, governments, businesses and societies worldwide, due in large part to ‘The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity’ (TEEB) initiative.

Building resilience in agricultural landscapes: finding solutions through business and conservation collaboration

A lack of tools for companies to engage on biodiversity and ecosystem services (BES) was highlighted in The Economics of Ecosystems & Biodiversity Business (TEEB) report. The first step for sustainable business is to identify the company's impacts and dependencies on BES. While companies strive to address the impacts of their operations, a broader approach is required in agricultural landscapes, to enable multiple stakeholders to assess BES risks, opportunities and interventions consistently.
