Enlarging and Connecting Protected Areas for Ecological Corridor of North East Asia

Protected areas are connencted with the BaekDooDaeGhan in the center in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.
However, it does not widely operate as an ecological network by disputes and borders.
Having the East Asia´s protected ecological corridor will make the wildlife possible to live in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.
And also it responds to the climate change. Therefore, we would like to urge to enlarge and connect the protected areas for ecological corridor.

Beyond Jargon II The Next Generation of Communication Strategies for a Sustainable World

In the face of 21st century information overload and opportunity, how can we use high-impact communication strategies to reach key audiences and drive conservation action? And how can IUCN contribute by supporting communications partnerships that move beyond the normal conservation jargon?

Conserving biodiversity across 1/9 OF THE EARTH

WWF-Russia together with more than 300 specialists carried out a gap-analysis of the existing federal PAs system of the Russian Federation. This analysis is the first of its kind for Russia, in which a unified scientific and methodological approach was used, taking into account all available sources of information on biological diversity and protected areas of Russia. Special attention is paid to the role of the network of federal protected areas in longterm conservation of rare and valuable species.

Protected Areas and Biodiversity Conservation in Asia

IUCN Asia RPAP and WCPA Asia would like to make an opportunity to share the experiences and knowledge to strengthen the protected area management and pan-Asia PA networks. In order to accomplish it, below issues will be highlighted at this workshop;
① Asian Protected Area Philosophy, which has emphasized "living in harmony with nature"
② Review on the management status of Asia´s protected areas(Management Effectiveness Evaluation in Asia)
③ IUCN WCPA Asia Strategy 2011-2014
④ Report on Preliminary Asia Park Congress (2011. Nov)

International cooperation for waterbird monitoring to support sound management

Recently, migratory birds populations have fluctuated in a great scale due to habitat loss and degradation, and climate change. To set up proper conservation strategy and to cope with the dramatic decrease of threatened and endangered species, exact information and analysis of current migratory birds population in a yearly basis is crucially important. The workshop aims to promote public participation to monitor the distribution and populations of waterbirds and status of wetlands.

Ecological Features of Orithyia sinica in Ganghwa Tidal Flat

Its larvae, for instance, are unlike those of any other crab. It is found that Orithyia sinica only inhabit the Yellow Sea and Ganghwa tidal flat in West Sea of Korea is the main habitat of Orithyia sinica in the world.

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".

Ensuring Ecosystem Resilience & Services: Developing Global Guidelines on the Management of Invasive Alien Species in Protected Areas incl. World heritage Sites

Protected areas (PAs) play a critical role in biodiversity conservation, are ´nature´s solutions´ to climate change and are vital to community health and wellbeing. Effective management is increasingly essential to allow PAs to play this role in the face of escalating challenges – climate change, increasing resource demands, and the impacts of invasive alien species, that can be exacerbated by the effects of climate change.
