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.

BioFresh: Mobilizing Freshwater Biodiversity Data to Aid Conservation Planning

Biodiversity data is crucial for obtaining a better understanding of species distribution and threats, necessary for setting conservation priorities. This is especially the case for freshwater environments, which are heavily affected by the global biodiversity crisis. Unfortunately, there are major gaps in the available data. Notwithstanding the fact that there is a huge body of data gathered by scientists and water managers, which could considerably improve large-scale biodiversity analyses and modeling work supporting and informing conservation.

Man, Development and Water: Issues and Challenges in Himalayas

Water being fulcrum of future pace of growth and development of any economy, it is expected that the proposed workshop will prove beneficial to understand the issues and challenges of water related development in context of human dimension as well know nature based solutions to climate change. In the process of development, man (human dimension) is lacking, there are policy makers and executor, but not involvement of those for whom these developmental activities have been planned.

Gestión Integrada de Cuencas: el caso de la cuenca del Río Cahoacán, Chiapas, México

El proyecto "Manejo de la cuenca del río Cahoacán, Chiapas, México a través de la conservación y restauración de microcuencas, para prevenir daños causados por el exceso de agua" logró articular una plataforma social e institucional que coadyuvó en la gestión participativa de las zonas de recarga hídrica y las zonas de riesgo de desastres, logrando un impacto directo sobre el 20% del territorio de la cuenca con acciones de conservación y restauración.

Facilitating Collaborative Responses to Environmental Crime through a Global Network of Environmental Prosecutors (CEL official event)

This workshop introduces an ambitious initiative to strengthen the capacity of public prosecutors and attorneys general to respond to poor compliance with environmental laws related to the illegal trade in flora, fauna and hazardous substances that compromise ecosystems and undermine nature´s resilience. The Global Network of Environmental Prosecutors (GNEP) is a collaborative leadership effort that links prosecutors globally to share information and best practices and builds capacity to carry out their work effectively.

Impacts of climate change in coastal areas of Gujarat, India

The impact of climate change are more prominently observed and felt by Gujarat state. The paper aims to analyze impact of climate change on locals and adaptation needs.

Establishing a regional organization for managing the aquatic ecosystems of East Asia

East Asia is a very densely populated area where one third of the world’s population resides; most of them reside in river basins and coastal areas where population and economic growth have been fastest, threatening food security and the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems, especially in coastal and estuarine areas where freshwater and marine ecosystems actively interact. The rivers and adjacent seas of East Asia are productive enough to support ca. 40% of the global fisheries yield and to account for ca.

Enhancing the North-East Asian Ecological Network for Conservation of Endangered Birds and their Habitat

The nature and culture in North-East Asia is supported by one ecosystem. During last several decades, on the one hand, each country in this region has been accomplished rapid economic development, but on the other, it has the depletion of the natural resources and extinction of the species. Under this circumstance we need an integrated management system and network for conservation and restoration of endangered birds and their habitats in the region.

Decision theory based conservation management

Using the example of surface water management we will show how decision theory concepts can be applied to conservation projects. The standardized procedure we propose will make the decision process of any such project very transparent and focused.

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).
