Launching a global partnership for capacity development

This event will celebrate two exciting new projects that will enhance protected area capacity development: The launch of Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management Project (BIOPAMA) and the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on protected area capacity development between the IUCN and the Convention for Biological Diversity.

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.

Species have the power to communicate; their conservation is portrayed through wonderful photos, amazing stories and dedicated, driven individuals working with local communities.

The world’s 100 most threatened species: right to existence?

The future existence of the world's 100 most critically endangered species lies squarely in our hands. Do these species have a right to exist, or do we have the right to drive them to extinction?
