Building a European Partnership to strenghten the civil society capacities of Southern countries

Small grants-based programs (SGBP) like those led by IUCN National Committees of Netherlands and France or CARPE focal points of IUCN have proved their efficiency in answering environmental issues faced by the southern countries.
Local NGOs have more executive legitimacy than international NGOs.
Targeted to small-scaled NGOs, these programs help the civil society to emerge in a bottom-up process and to improve its structural organization while building its capacities for lobbying and improvement of national environmental policies.

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.

The Global Wetlands Observing System: GEO BON support for Ramsar

Information about the about the geographic extent, status (eg., land cover, hydrology, biodiversity), and use of these wetlands is scattered, difficult to locate, and more difficult to incorporate into multidisciplinary analyses that can inform conservation and management strategies. To address this problem, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands has proposed the development of a Global Wetland Observing System (GWOS) – a network and portal for organizing information on wetlands and their wise use.

Restoration ecology of Anzali wetlands invaded by Azolla

It is about wetland connectivities and the impact of manmade systems on the natural ecosystems. I´ll show how an invasive plant can finds its way from for example an agriculture feild to a wetland and threats the being of that ecosystem and the whole of biodiversity of them. And will describe the negetive effects of this invasive species on the environmental funcion of the nature and the loses that many stakeholder are affected by. In the last step I am going to introduse the easy measure to get rid of the stain. the way which would be ecologically and with out any side effect.

Uniting for action in the Western Indian Ocean: climate resilience, food security and biodiversity conservation

The Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region has a rich diversity of marine and coastal ecosystems, from a distinct evolutionary history over 100 million years old. The region has a geographic and marine identity encircled by the east coast of Africa and the mid-ocean banks ringing the southwest Indian Ocean islands and by marine currents south of the equator. The coastal and marine ecosystems of the WIO provide food and income for over 60 million people as well as other goods and services of strategic importance to national economies.

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

This Knowledge Cafe aims to catalyse action amongst agricultural companies and other stakeholders in agricultural landscapes to improve ecosystem resilience. While companies strive to address the impacts of their operations, a broader approach is required in agricultural landscapes, to enable multiple stakeholders to assess biodiversity risks, opportunities and interventions consistently.

Recovering Kashmir Red Deer (Cervus elaphus hanglu) from its relic population in Dachigam National Park of Jammu and Kashmir State, India.

The only population of Kashmir Red Deer or Hangul (Cervus elaphus hanglu), endemic to Jammu and Kashmir State of India, has drastically declined with its population figures bouncing down from 2000 in 1947 to mere 200 heads in 2011, thereby pushing the species squarely towards extinction. Shrinking habitat, over the years, forced the confinement of this animal to Dachigam N. Park of Jammu and Kashmir, which, down the timeline, got its identity established as last abode of hangul.

Myth of invincibility shattered: evaluation of current trends in the conservation status of marine species

Marine species have long been considered resilient to extinction because they have widespread distributional ranges and are abundant. We know now that this myth of ocean invincibility has been shattered, with marine species extinctions recorded since the beginning of the Holocene. The rates of exploitation and habitat destruction are only expected to increase and intensify as food sources become more depleted. Hundreds of marine species are threatened with extinction, and it is clear that marine biodiversity is experiencing potentially irreversible degradation.

How can companies assess their performance in relation to biodiversity?

Businesses are increasingly aware of their impacts on the natural environment and mindful of the need to effectively manage such impacts. Many businesses are also helping to deliver improved conservation outcomes through the integration of biodiversity considerations into their decision-making and operational processes.
