Demand reduction messaging for consumption of tigers and other endangered wildlife species

The world will see iconic wildlife species go extinct in the near future if the unbridled demand for parts and products of these and other endangered species is not significantly reduced. This has already happened for sub-species of tiger and rhino in Asia. There is little doubt that in the short term, direct action to identify and apprehend poachers and illegal traders is of the utmost importance, but without a complementary effort to impact the persistent market demand that drives this trade, emergency enforcement action alone will be in vain.

Understanding the biofuels policy-standards interface and its implications for biodiversity and food security

With biofuel mandates introduced by over 50 national governments around the world, there is increasing recognition that such mandates must be accompanied by biofuel policies designed to mitigate direct environmental and social impacts, as well as consider the risk of indirect impacts to food security and land use. There is also a need for biofuel policies to incentivise the development and use of the next generation of biofuels sourced from non-competing wastes and crop/forestry residues within ecological limits.

ENGAGING PARTNERS AND DONORS FOR ENHANCED IPs LAND / NATURAL RESOURCES RIGHTS IN CENTRAL AFRICA

Countries of Central African region host some of the most important forest dwelling Indigenous People (IPs) and nature dependent communities whose livelihood and cultures depend on some of the most biologically rich landscapes of the world. These IP communities are traditionally nomadic or semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers, or transhumant cattle pastoralists such. IPs face the urgency of adaptation.

The Environmental Doomsday Clock: Survey on Global Environmental Issues

For 20 years, Asahi Glass Foundation has been publishing the report, "Result of the questionnaire on environmental problems and the survival of humankind." It is about cognition of environmental experts of the world about the pressing environmental situation.

To summarize the cognition of the experts, we created "The Environmental Doomsday Clock" that gauges whether we locate near or far from the environmental death and destruction of nature, which inevitably leads to the Doomsday of human being.

Parks and landscapes. Policies, planning and management

The main poster’s topic is the relationship between nature conservation policies and landscape policies, taking into account the strategic relevance of this theme in the IUCN´s debate, in the UNESCO policy, in the European Landscape Convention (Council of Europe, 2000) and its possible development at the world level: the focal question is to verify whether, and at which conditions, landscape policies may strengthen the role and effectiveness of Protected Areas and, inversely, whether Protected Areas can be a privileged field for the application of landscape policies.

Powering the green economy: biodiversity in energy decision making

While all energy options can have negative impacts on people and the environment, whether biofuels or wind or wave, and these impacts can be reduced or even avoided with proactive engagement in planning and siting developments. This can be as directed by governments, and also through companies employing best practice.

This poster aims to highlight the various issues and approaches identified by Members and partners, to support the transition to a green economy in their home countries.

Making the case for plant conservation: fulfilling the promise of the GSPC

Les élus nationaux et locaux face au défi climatique

Les changements climatiques nécessitent la forte mobilisation des échelons décisionnels pour garantir le succès des stratégies et des approches préconisées. Cela, d´autant plus que la résolution de l´équation du climat passe inévitablement par une refonte globale des politiques de développement et d´environnement, et par conséquent, par une redéfinition du rôle des différents acteurs impliqués. Dans cette perspective, la place des parlementaires et des élus locaux doivent davantage être reprécisée pour leur permettre d´assurer la plénitude de leurs prérogatives.

Résilience d´un paysage transfrontalier (Bassin du Congo): tendance de la conservation-développement du Tri-National Sangha

Le paysage forestier tropical du Tri National de la Sangha (TNS) d´une superficie d'environ 44,000 km2 comprend trois secteurs à cheval sur la frontière du Cameroun, Congo et la République Centrafricaine. Il se situe au cœur du Bassin du Congo, lui même le deuxième massif forestier du monde après celui de l´Amazonie. Il est riche en ressources faunique, floristique, halieutique et hydrique. Depuis 2004, une approche de suivi participatif a été développée et mise en œuvre par l´ensemble des partenaires intervenant dans la zone.
