Adopting Green Practices in Response to Oil Spills in 3 Regions

Catastrophic oil spills from offshore drilling, tankers or other ships produce some of the most dramatic and tragic environmental disasters that can impact local ecosystems and livelihoods. Because public policies in many countries do not demand accountability from responsible stakeholders to provide swift and concerted cleanup after oil spills, damage beyond the coping capacity of impacted local ecosystems can result in long-term socioeconomic and environmental damage to coastal areas.

Transforming Agriculture, Transforming Conservation: New partnerships for global environmental resilience and food sovereignty

Integrating conservation with agriculture and food security has now become central to sustainable development at all scales, from local community to global, and is at the heart of the challenges in greening the economy and sustaining ecosystems. If we are to enhance nature’s resilience and sustain biocultural diversity we must engage with agriculture. This workshop will gather leaders from conservation organizations, research institutions, global programs and farmer/food movements working at landscape-scale to establish common conceptual frameworks and imagine practical collaborations. It will feature exemplary case studies that illuminate successes while exploring the kinds of mechanisms and institutional partnerships needed. A facilitated discussion will explore local experience as well as the general lessons learned, particularly in regard to how IUCN members can partner with other crucial actors to integrate agriculture and ecology.

Tools and capacity building for addressing benefits and risks of REDD+ in Asia

This workshop session will provide an overview of capacity needs and tools for REDD+ in the Asia region, particularly in relation to the social and environmental benefits and risks of REDD+. Government representatives and forest professionals will present the most critical constraints of designing REDD+ policy goals and measures, from countries in Asia. This will be followed by introductions from the UN-REDD Programme on selected tools to address the risks and benefits of REDD+, and discussion of the initial experience of using these tools, including within UN-REDD countries.

High Seas Protected Areas: learning from success

This Knowledge Cafe will identify winning approaches that can be replicated on the high seas (areas beyond national jurisdiction), leading to the identification, designation and effective management of a representative system of marine protected areas (MPAs).

Through exchange of information on existing and emerging offshore MPAs and scenario studies of potential paths ahead, particpants will identify key elements for success. Participants will also share new scientific, analytical and legal tools for building systems of MPAs as part of a wider integrated ecosystem-approach.

PRCM : A West African Coalition for Biodiversity Conservation

In 2003, IUCN, FIBA, WWF, and Wetlands International launched the Regional Marine and Coastal Conservation Program (PRCM) for West Africa. To date, this Coalition boasts a membership of over 50 organisations. This poster is designed to represent the Coalition, strong and in action, and refers to the motivating factors and key milestones of the partnership building process, as well as the major obstacles encountered and solutions provided.

Connectivity Conservation, Law and Beyond: for an environmentally and socially resilient planet

Workshop Objectives
To promote the role that collaborative connectivity conservation plays in enhancing biodiversity conservation and by providing nature-based solutions to climate change and in increasing the health and resilience of communities by:
1) Inspiring environmental and social connectivity conservation through the demonstration of global exemplars, including new IUCN and partner connectivity conservation initiatives.

Preserving nature for both conservation and human health outcomes

There is significant evidence that supports the connection between a healthy environment and a healthy society. It has long been recognised that nature provides many societal benefits = healthy parks sustain healthy people!

Conservation of the Black-faced Spoonbill

The Black-faced Spoonbill (Platalea minor) has the most restricted distribution of all spoonbills: confined to the coastal areas of eastern Asia. It is listed as an endangered species by the IUCN. Its main breeding sites are distributed along the west coast of Korea. The wintering sites are the southern parts of Korea, Japan, Taiwan, HongKong, China, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Promoting a Blue Society - an Ocean of opportunity

Facing the challenge of developing a new ambitious model for sustainable development, fostering well-being and equity for mankind in harmony with the World´s ocean, its fundamental element, we propose to develop the concept of "Blue Society," an ocean of opportunities for all. This new concept is based on the premise that there are two imperatives that society should integrate: satisfying the needs of our planet´s inhabitants today; and preserving the means of subsistence for the generations to come, especially the resources and services provided by the ocean.

Estado Actual de las Prioridades y Vacíos de Conservación de los Ecosistemas, SINAP-Colombia

Existe información disgregada sobre identificación de prioridades de conservación en diversas escalas, con diferentes objetivos de conservación y bajo metodologías particulares. De allí la importancia de unificar criterios y metodologías existentes en las diferentes escalas, en donde se ha avanzado con la recopilación de 15 estudios de identificación de prioridades de conservación y aplicar metodologías en las escalas regional y departamental, para lo cual ya se cuentan con algunas herramientas técnicas nacionales, regionales y locales, que deben ser homogeneizadas.
