Protected areas (incl. World Heritage)

Expanding capacity building efforts to enhance protected area management effectiveness in the Asian context

Building capacity for effective protected area management is a critical challenge for biodiversity conservation in Asia and beyond. Continuous change on a global scale has led to increasingly complex management scenarios that demand a broader base of skills for today’s conservation professionals.

Our Protected Planet - Celebrating progress on global protected area targets

Protected areas have for centuries been a tried and tested method for the conservation of nature. Today we know that well-managed protected areas lead not only to healthy ecosystems and refuge to threatened species, but also provide multiple benefits to people, including a wide range of services such as clean water provision, food security, climate regulation, disaster risk reduction and additional services. This event will look at progress and celebrate success in protected areas through the launch of the inaugural Protected Planet Report.

1. Implementing natural solutions to climate change in North America - 2. Launch of best practice guidelines for ecological restoration of protected areas

Purpose:
To facilitate and capture conversations about the role that protected areas play in providing natural solutions to climate change and how to build and expand on North American initiatives to connect to the broader global community of practice.

Natural Solutions: protected areas helping people cope with climate change

This session will highlight the role of protected areas in providing natural solutions to climate change adaptation and mitigation. Several key publications will be launched, emphasising how protected areas can contribute to national and local climate change strategies.

Sharing experiences and learning in support of Indigenous Heritage in World Heritage

Recognition of the value of indigenous heritage gained importance in the World Heritage Convention with the creation of Cultural Landscapes in 1992, and its application to Tongariro National Park (New Zealand, 1993) and Uluru-Kata Tjuta (Australia, 1994) – key areas where Aboriginal cultures had been part of the landscape for centuries or millennia. Traditional systems were at the core of conservation and management in those areas and were the basis for their inscription under cultural criteria.

SOS Happy Hour - Saving wildlife - yes we can!

Wildlife generates interest and arouses our passion which is demonstrated by the huge popularity of zoos or botanical gardens visited worldwide. Species have the power to communicate; their conservation is portrayed through wonderful photos, amazing stories and dedicated, driven individuals working with local communities.
