Strengthening Local Governance Systems, to improve Business Climate in the Mesoamerican Forest Sector

The forests of Mesoamerica impact on the quality of life, sustained economic growth and economic mobility of the rural poor and extremely poor populations. These ecosystems are also one of the main opportunities for climate change mitigation and adaptation, and comprise one of the most biodiversity-rich zones on the planet. However, the Mesoamerican region displays some of the highest deforestation and forest degradation rates in the world, coupled with the highest stratums of rural poverty and extreme poverty of the northern and central parts of the hemisphere.

Investing in Natural Infrastructure as an Element of Green Economies

The development of Green Economies, as a pathway to sustainable development and poverty reduction, has been adopted as one of the two themes of the Rio +20 conference, which will precede and help frame discussions at the IUCN World Conservation Congress. The Green Economy approach is founded on the principle that healthy ecosystems (wetlands, forests, floodplains, estuaries, etc.), rich in natural capital, underpin sustainable economies that are resilient to external shocks. For example, a natural wetland can yield fish to ensure food security, and water to allow for irrigation.

Addressing the Global Amphibian Crisis by Integrating Policy, Planning, and Research

Amphibians are among the most threatened groups of organisms on the planet, with over one third of the evaluated 6300 species listed as threatened and a further one third exhibiting declining populations. In 2005, an Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP) was drafted as a general framework for amphibian conservation worldwide. This framework needs to be downscaled and tailored to the unique challenges that amphibians face in different parts of the world, and translated into specific actions needed to safeguard local amphibian faunas.
