Sharing benefits and efforts from transboundary conservation

The workshop will present key achievements and approaches in transboundary conservation in order to enable discussion to help share knowledge, experience and solutions, and advance global transboundary conservation practice. The workshop will bring forward some of the most prominent transboundary initiatives and case studies such as the European Green Belt and Korean DMZ as a basis for an open and interactive dialogue on the current state and future prospects of transboundary conservation.

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.

Engaging the worldwide Red List community: Building capacity for assessing species´ extinction risk

The IUCN Red List is recognized as the most comprehensive source of information on species´ conservation status, based on the best available knowledge from the world´s leading experts. It is widely influential in informing conservation planning, resource allocation, national and international conservation policies and priority-setting strategies (including intergovernmental agreements such as CBD/CMS/CITES and other Conventions), directing scientific research, and generating public awareness of the mounting biodiversity crisis and its impact on human well-being.

Youth Engagement and Intergenerational Partnership for Sustainability: Toward an IUCN-wide Action Plan

Workshop Description

We strongly feel that youth engagement and intergenerational partnership are essential for achieving biodiversity outcomes, including more effective and equitable governance of nature’s use. In Barcelona, the Members’ Assembly adopted Resolution 4.098 on Intergenerational Partnership and, emerging from Commission Young Professionals Networks, the Task Force on Intergenerational Partnership for Sustainability has been established to support IUCN's vision of “a just world that values and conserves nature.”

Workshop objectives:

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.

Conservation Finance: gaps, comparative analysis and alternatives in a dynamic debate

The resilience of conservation initiatives, including protected areas, depends in great measure on their financial sustainability. Addressing funding requirements through an appropriate mix of public funding, revenues and innovative financial arrangements that support conservation efforts, including best practices of governance, accountability and financial management, is a key aspect to achieve conservation outcomes.

Several efforts over the past few years are brought together in this workshop. Analyses of the costs and sources of funding at regional level, lessons learned regarding the utility of conservation trust funds and project financing, experiences with sustainable financing at system and site scale, and the prospects of innovative financing mechanisms will be presented. Most importantly, the workshop will take stock of the prospects for achieving success in the future.

The Art of implementation: Gender and Climate Change

For many years there has been the assumption that the negative impacts of climate change and the efforts to mitigate them have similar effects on both women and men. However, the world has progressively recognized that women and men experience climate change differently, and that gender inequalities worsen the coping capacity of women and societies as a whole.

A Spatial Analysis of Korean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)

Protected area designation is essentially a spatial approach that attempts to regulate the human use of a space by preemptively labeling it as ´protected.´ Far from the title, however, a protected is not always "protected" in a rigorous sense. In effect, as reflected in the IUCN definition, a protected area includes diverse categories from those that are strictly preserved to those that are communally managed without a necessary legal protection.

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.

Addressing Development Impacts at an Ecosystem Level: The Practical Application of the Mitigation Hierarchy

The mitigation protocol (avoid, minimize, offset/compensate) is being used at an increasing number of institutions and places around the world to reduce the environmental impacts of urban, infrastructure, industrial and agricultural development. Used correctly at an ecosystem scale, the mitigation protocol can be a highly effective method of integrating human needs and sustaining ecological processes across wide areas and can mobilize money to support conservation that would not otherwise be available.
