The Promotion of World Environmental Hub as a Model City in Jeju (KOC official session)

"Environment is in a mutual relationship with the components of society and economy which are the realities impacting negatively on the conservation of environment. This means that environment, economy and society should be in an integrated framework.
Nonetheless, the existing cities aiming at achieving an eco-city attempt to implement it on the basis of a uni-dimensional approach such as the management of energy or wastes, etc.

Knowledge exchange in the social cloud: New pathways for professional updating in conservation

Bring your mobile devices, smartphones, pads, laptops, cameras to engage in storytelling with a purpose: using social media to move to action in professional updating for conservation. The session will produce multimedia portable presentations, useful as training resources and as social postcards from the World Conservation Forum. We will encounter examples of excellent networked knowledge sharing, and identify key elements of quality in multimedia conservation training.

Marine Conservation in Asia and the Pacific: Scoping Pathways for International Dialogue

Over the next decades, climate change and other factors will cause greater stress on the environment and will increase conflicts among states and groups within these states regarding access to and use of natural resources. Trade interests, control over resources and pollution are issues to be solved in dialogue to prevent conflicts, loss of biodiversity and environmental degradation. Security is closely linked to the IUCN core program area of ‘sharing nature’s benefits equitably’.

Ocean +

The world has made tremendous progress in reducing poverty, but significantly less in managing the environment sustainably, particularly the ocean environment. Problems like pollution, overexploitation of fish stocks, biodiversity loss, overuse of water and land threaten countries´ development efforts.

High Seas Conservation: how can we manage our common oceans responsibly?

After years of discussion at the United Nations, many States are now calling for a new multilateral agreement for the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction. Come get an update on threats to high seas biodiversity and gaps in governance, debate the advantages and disadvantages of a new legal agreement, contribute on ways to improve the effectiveness of existing agreements, and help plan a better future for our global ocean commons.

Conserving biodiversity and sharing nature´s benefits: Virtual learning, technology, tools and species conservation

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) play important roles in international species management. This interactive session will introduce the CITES Virtual College (https://eva.unia.es/cites/) , consider sustainability assessments using pythons as an example and understand tools developed by UNEP-WCMC to streamline data collection and MEA reporting requirements with an example from AEWA.

Implementing the Ecosystem Approach to Water Resources Management: learning from scenarios for transboundary river basins

Protecting and adequately managing water resources is a cross-cutting issue relevant for environmental sustainability, climate change adaptation, sanitation, economy, socio-political interaction, livelihoods and human well-being. Unfortunately, such complex endeavor has proven to be easier said than done in most regions; situation that turns more complicated when considering the transboundary character of most freshwater ecosystems in the world. In a transboundary context, shared resources are subject to competition, different jurisdictions and contrasting interests.

Learning from the Guardians of Sacred Natural Sites - dialogue and exchange

High level Policy makers, institutional representatives, conservation and civil society leaders will be brought together with and custodians to evaluate the options for international and national policy and practice in order to better legally recognise, safeguard and conserve Sacred Natural Sites.

Locally managed marine areas, towards a global learning network

Local and indigenous communities are intricately linked to the ocean by livelihoods, culture, and science, thus binding their governance of the marine environment with its care and conservation. As we move toward the World Summit on Sustainable Development 2012 marine target, it is timely to consider the contribution of community-based management for the protection of marine biodiversity. Though we are globally short of our marine protection targets, we have underestimated the potential of communities in governing marine managed and protected areas.
