Efficient management and preservation of fisheries resources in freshwater ecosystem(South Korea)

The study sought to determine the efficient management of fisheries resources (Coreoperca herzi) by estimating the potential yield (PY), which means the maximum sustainable yield (MSY) based on the optimal stock, in the mid-upper region of the Seomjin River watershed from August 2008 to April 2009. To estimate the population ecological characteristic, the age determined by counting the otolith annuli. The stock assessment was conducted by the swept area method and PY was estimated by a modified fisheries management system based on the allowable biological catch (ABC).

Building Resilience through the Conservation and Use of Agricultural Biodiversity: The UNEP-GEF Contribution

Current agricultural practices are regarded as one of the most significant drivers of biodiversity loss. At the same time, the goal of achieving global food security remains a long way off. The world desperately needs an agricultural production system that is both resilient and contributes to achieving food security. Agricultural biodiversity will play a central role in achieving these twin objectives. By conserving and harnessing agricultural biodiversity, food and agriculture production can contribute to sustaining healthy biodiverse ecosystems.

Training on the implementation of rights-based approaches to conservation

Various groups and organizations, from the local to the global spheres, have attempted to shift legal frameworks, policies and practices towards conservation objectives factoring (human) rights considerations in their decision-making processes in order to promote biodiversity conservation and at the same time secure the rights of people. This has been referred to as rights-based approaches to conservation (RBAs).

Proyectos de Infraestructura y Conservación de la Biodiversidad: respuestas sostenibles al crecimiento económico tradicional

Los países en desarrollo que cuentan con una amplia biodiversidad se enfrentan al desarrollo de grandes obras de infraestructura que promueven los modelos de desarrollo tradicional basados en el crecimiento económico continuo. Proyectos de infraestructura como IIRSA en la región Sudamericana, que tiene como objetivo mejorar la integración de los países en esta región, pueden llevar así mismo a generar graves impactos ambientales, en biomas de gran importancia como el Amazónico, tales como degradación de bosques, introducción de especies exóticas, entre otros.

Conocimientos tradicionales para el mundo.

Gran parte de la población mundial experimenta algún tipo de impacto por el cambio climático. Heladas y olas de frío, alteración en los regímenes de lluvias estacionales, sequías prolongadas, cambios en la duración de las estaciones, desplazamiento de los campos de cultivo y pérdida de semillas son, entre otras, consecuencias de este fenómeno.
En la región, los ecosistemas andinos y amazónicos, su biodiversidad y sus agro-ecosistemas están siendo afectados. Como muestra de ello, las poblaciones enfrentan problemas de acceso y disponibilidad de recursos naturales.

Contribution to a Brazilian National Road Map to implement the outcome of CBD COP10

The main purpose of this activity in Brazil is to contribute to the development of a national biodiversity strategy to fulfill the demands, at a national level, of the CBD Strategic Plan for the Post-2010 Period, as approved in Nagoya at COP10.

Building on an existing partnership between IUCN and the Brazilian Environment Ministry, this project aims to bring together stakeholders from across government, business, indigenous people, civil society and academia to design a refreshed national biodiversity strategy and design a process of implementing and monitoring it.

Our Protected Planet: Achieving Aichi biodiversity targets through constituency building, science and action (WCPA official session)

Protected areas are well known as the cornerstones in biodiversity conservation efforts. The Aichi Biodiversity Targets, particularly Target 11, challenge the world to significantly strengthen protected area implementation for the conservation of biodiversity. Protected areas need to be "effectively and equitably managed, ecologically representative and well connected systems" and located in "areas of particular importance for biodiversity and ecosystem services".

Collaborating with Local and Sub-National Authorities to archieve the Aichi targets

Context :
- existing initiatives : partenership between IUCN France and sub-national governement about regional strategy for biodiversity and ecosystem services, LAB of ICLEI
- implementation of the Plan of Action on Sub-national Governments, Cities, and other Local Authorities for Biodiversity (Nagoya 2010)

Major issue :How can local and sub-national authorities rely on the expertise of IUCN (Secretariat, IUCN members, national and regional committees, experts) to archeive the Aichi targets ?

Earth Democracy and the Biosphere Ethics Initiative: ethical arguments in biodiversity conservation (CEL official session)

Habitat loss, species loss, culture loss... business as usual is not working and individuals, organizations and governments are seeking creative, practical alternatives. The purpose of this workshop is to highlight ethical arguments in biodiversity conservation, as seen through real examples around the world, and show how they can be applied in diverse situations to inform law and policy.
