World Heritage Areas as learning landscapes - turning research results into management action

The World Heritage Centre has proposed that, "World Heritage properties can serve as laboratories where monitoring, mitigation and adaptation processes can be applied, tested and improved. They can partner with relevant organizations in field activities on mitigation and adaptation strategies, methodologies, tools and/or pilot projects". While this proposal was developed in the context of climate change, its logic extends to all aspects of the sustainable management of World Heritage Areas to achieve sustainable environmental, social and economic outcomes.

Upgrading Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) through National Park Experiences

Understanding and Implementing the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories

Most national and regional protected area strategies include a protected area network as a fundamental component. IUCN WCPA´s definition and categorisation of protected area types allows policy makers and international organisations to quantify and understand this global network of protected areas; and the CBD´s Programme of Work on Protected Areas encourages the use of IUCN´s harmonised system for reporting protected areas.

Community based chimpanzee conservation in Guinea Bissau

CHIMBO Foundation’s goal is chimpanzee conservation in West-Africa.
CHIMBO runs a community based conservation program in the south-eastern part of Guinea Bissau: the Boé sector. This is an area with a rich biodiversity with the chimpanzee as its flagship species.
Population growth (100% in 15 years) and the resulting need for more food threatens the rich flora and fauna.

Access and Benefit Sharing and Protected Areas: how are they linked?

What exactly is Access and Benefit Sharing and how does it work?
How will new policy and legal frameworks on ABS impact protected areas, and the indigenous peoples and local communities living in and around them?
What can conservation gain from ABS, what can ABS learn from protected areas, and where are the challenges to achieve these gains?

Education for Sustainable China: the collective voice, wisdom and action in schools and communities

Shangri-la Institute for Sustainable Communities (SISC) works to promote social transformation towards sustainability through our Education for a Sustainable China (ESC) programme.
