The REDD HOT Gender Debate in the Just World Pavilion

Gender considerations are a central component that can determine the success of any forest initiative. Hence forth, when discussing REDD+ there is an urgent need to recognize that forest governance has two different, but complementary faces: those of women and men.

Although both are equal stakeholders with unique characteristics and differentiated needs, women’s voices in forest governance around the world are sorely lacking. If the role of women were to be considered, the livelihoods of societies dependent on the forests could be drastically improved.

Is REDD+ an opportunity for or a constraint for economic development in Central Africa?

REDD+ is a global phenomenon seeking to achieve reconciliation between economic growth and forest conservation and coincides with the ascendancy of devolved natural resources management policies, and creates opportunities for communities to be included in new, equitable and pro-poor approaches.

Human Rights, Indigenous Peoples and a New Role for Conservation Organizations in Nature´s Governance

A key theme of the Congress is a Blueprint for Action in which participants are being asked to “put aside differences and work together to provide the means and mechanisms for good environmental governance, engaging all parts of society to share both responsibilities and the benefits of conservation.” Through this high-level dialogue, sponsored by the Conservation Initiative on Human Rights (CIHR), we will bring together Indigenous leaders, the senior leadership of international conservation organizations that are members of the CIHR, and leaders from the human rights and sustainable development fields to build a shared understanding of how human and Indigenous rights, equity and good governance underpin effective conservation, and how diverse constituencies can work together towards common goals for sharing nature’s benefits fairly and equitably.

DMZ´s biodiversity and its future

BACKGROUND

The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a military buffer zone in the middle of the Korean Peninsula, was formed as a result of the Armistice Agreement on July 27 1953, which ended the Korean War (1950-1953). Due to the long and strong fortification against human access, the Korean DMZ and its adjacent areas now became rich habitats for a variety of plant and animal species and an important nature conservation agenda of the South Korean government.

More Effective and Equitable Nature Conservation: Lessons on Governance of Diverse Protected Areas

“Effective and equitable governance of nature’s use” is one of three pillars identified in the draft IUCN program of work for 2013-2016. This interactive workshop will focus on two main areas. First, it will provide conceptual guidance that will set the stage for how to move forward and consolidate protected area governance work within IUCN. Second, we will consolidate experience, and provide examples of governance best practice in a diversity of protected areas, including Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs), private protected areas, and World Heritage Sites.
