Implementation of the Action Plan for the Conservation of West African Manatees in Guinea-Bissau

The poster will show first project results concerning the actions of CBD-Habitat supported by OceanCare to improve the implementation of the Action Plan for the Western African Manatee on the field in Guinea-Bissau. The support of the Manatee action plan was developed mainly by performing a valorisation of its status in Orango National Park (Guinea-Bissau) as well as by the identification of the impact that fisheries causes to the population, and the identification of critical habitats of the species in order that their protection can be improved by national authorities.

Beyond Jargon II The Next Generation of Communication Strategies for a Sustainable World

In the face of 21st century information overload and opportunity, how can we use high-impact communication strategies to reach key audiences and drive conservation action? And how can IUCN contribute by supporting communications partnerships that move beyond the normal conservation jargon?

Making vulnerability assessments matter for climate change adaptation in the Pacific Islands

As global climate change continues to impact Pacific Islands, the clear need for local and regional adaptation has made vulnerability assessments (VAs) an increasingly useful planning tool for biocultural resource adaptation.

Biodiversity and Development along the Congo River: Bridging more than rivers

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity, a team made up of 67 Belgian, Congolese and international scientists set off on an expedition along the Congo River. Natural and social scientists as well as health experts made their way along a 1000 km stretch of this mighty river, from Kisangani to Bumba and back, to study biodiversity and development issues along the river and in the forests of the Congo basin.

Protected Areas and Biodiversity Conservation in Asia

IUCN Asia RPAP and WCPA Asia would like to make an opportunity to share the experiences and knowledge to strengthen the protected area management and pan-Asia PA networks. In order to accomplish it, below issues will be highlighted at this workshop;
① Asian Protected Area Philosophy, which has emphasized "living in harmony with nature"
② Review on the management status of Asia´s protected areas(Management Effectiveness Evaluation in Asia)
③ IUCN WCPA Asia Strategy 2011-2014
④ Report on Preliminary Asia Park Congress (2011. Nov)

International cooperation for waterbird monitoring to support sound management

Recently, migratory birds populations have fluctuated in a great scale due to habitat loss and degradation, and climate change. To set up proper conservation strategy and to cope with the dramatic decrease of threatened and endangered species, exact information and analysis of current migratory birds population in a yearly basis is crucially important. The workshop aims to promote public participation to monitor the distribution and populations of waterbirds and status of wetlands.

Ecological Features of Orithyia sinica in Ganghwa Tidal Flat

Family Orithyiidae Dana, 1852 is a monotypic family and includes the single species, Orithyia sinica (Linnaeus, 1771) which called the tiger crab or tiger face crab. Its larvae, for instance, are unlike those of any other crab. It is found that Orithyia sinica only inhabit the Yellow Sea and Ganghwa tidal flat in West Sea of Korea is the main habitat of Orithyia sinica in the world.

Ensuring Ecosystem Resilience & Services: Developing Global Guidelines on the Management of Invasive Alien Species in Protected Areas incl. World heritage Sites

Protected areas (PAs) play a critical role in biodiversity conservation, are ´nature´s solutions´ to climate change and are vital to community health and wellbeing. Effective management is increasingly essential to allow PAs to play this role in the face of escalating challenges – climate change, increasing resource demands, and the impacts of invasive alien species, that can be exacerbated by the effects of climate change.
