DMZ´s biodiversity and its future

BACKGROUND

The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a military buffer zone in the middle of the Korean Peninsula, was formed as a result of the Armistice Agreement on July 27 1953, which ended the Korean War (1950-1953). Due to the long and strong fortification against human access, the Korean DMZ and its adjacent areas now became rich habitats for a variety of plant and animal species and an important nature conservation agenda of the South Korean government.

More Effective and Equitable Nature Conservation: Lessons on Governance of Diverse Protected Areas

“Effective and equitable governance of nature’s use” is one of three pillars identified in the draft IUCN program of work for 2013-2016. This interactive workshop will focus on two main areas. First, it will provide conceptual guidance that will set the stage for how to move forward and consolidate protected area governance work within IUCN. Second, we will consolidate experience, and provide examples of governance best practice in a diversity of protected areas, including Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs), private protected areas, and World Heritage Sites.
