Operationalizing the Ecosystem Approach in conservation and development cooperation projects

There is an internationally generalised concurrence on the merits of planning and managing environmental conservation and development in an “Integrated”, “Holistic”, “Comprehensive” way. In this regard, the IUCN Ecosystem Approach (EA), with its five steps to implementation, emerged as one the most significant reference framework for a number of conservation and development cooperation projects.

Law, good governance and climate change adaptation

The role of law and governance is minimal in most adaptation efforts to date, which largely focus on immediate local adaptation needs, particularly in the natural resource sectors.

Riverine wetland ecosystem management for enhancing water resources and ecosystem services in Korea

*In Korea freshwater and river ecosystem serves important function for water resources, conservation and recreation. This natural resources need special attention due to increased land-use pressure, modification, climate change, etc.
*During the Congress Nature+ becomes a theme and our event can deal with important natural resources such as water and freshwater conservation
*Wetlands also provide us water resources and ecosystem service and the event will encourage water ecosystem conservation and wise use of wetlands for stackholders and participants.

Regional platforms for enhanced conservation – experiences from South-Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus

Convening stakeholders and building partnerships for action lies at the core of IUCN’s mission and is the principle applied across our work on protected areas in Europe. Centered on transboundary conservation and diversified governance approaches, regional conservation platforms in South-Eastern Europe and the Caucasus region help define common objectives, convene different actors, and promote joint actions and solutions.

Community based conservation and sacred sites – a review of the Aichi targets, ICCAs and best practices for sacred natural sites

This event is divided into 2 part. The first, which will last one hour, is organised by the ICCA Consortium and is entitled:

Everything you always wanted to know about Aichi Target 11 and ICCAs… but never dared to ask!

Possible uses, and abuses, of DOPA, a digital observatory for protected areas

The development of means for biodiversity monitoring and forecasting requires some significant changes in the way data are collected and processed. The frequent absence of interoperability of the existing information systems serving these data is an issue that is well known. A number of international initiatives, the largest one being GEOSS, the Global Earth Observation System of Systems, have therefore been put in place to better coordinate the efforts to improve and streamline information systems.

Engaging business for conservation

Considering business impacts and dependencies on biodiversity, there is an urgent need for the conservation community to engage with business. This conservation campus session is aimed at conservation organizations and, in particular IUCN members, that wish to engage business in delivering conservation goals. The session will provide guidance on how to set up and run engagements with progressive businesses. NGOs with experience in such engagements as well as businesses working with conservation organizations will share their experiences and recommendations.

Making the best use of the IUCN Red List with the Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES)

Since 2008 there have been repeated calls for a commitment of resources to ensure that the emerging Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) makes good use of existing initiatives. Now formally established, the platform will shortly discuss its conceptual framework and adopt its first programme of work that might include thematic assessments such as on restoration of degraded lands, pollination services, and sub-global assessments of ecosystem services.
