Managing Wild Species and Systems for Food Security

One of the greatest challenges facing humanity is ensuring food security for the 9 billion people expected by the year 2050 while conserving biodiversity and ecosystem services furnished by natural systems. Two linked pathways toward a solution will be explored by this workshop: the use of more diversity in agricultural systems, including tapping the variation within wild plant species related to food crops, and managing forest systems more effectively for food. Many wild relatives of important food crops are at risk as their habitats are threatened by poor management and encroachment.

Conservation and Poverty, Landscapes and Livelihoods - What have we learnt about the links?

In the last decade many initiatives have been developed to improve our understanding of the linkages between biodiversity conservation, livelihoods and poverty alleviation, and the various factors (markets, governance, rights and tenure, national and global policies, etc) that impact those linkages. These include IUCN’s Landscapes and Livelihoods Strategy (LLS); CIFOR's Poverty Environment Network, the MacArthur-funded Advancing Conservation in a Social Context initiative and the DFID-funded Ecosystem Services and Poverty Alleviation initiative.

Tools and capacity building for addressing benefits and risks of REDD+ in Asia

This workshop session will provide an overview of capacity needs and tools for REDD+ in the Asia region, particularly in relation to the social and environmental benefits and risks of REDD+. Government representatives and forest professionals will present the most critical constraints of designing REDD+ policy goals and measures, from countries in Asia. This will be followed by introductions from the UN-REDD Programme on selected tools to address the risks and benefits of REDD+, and discussion of the initial experience of using these tools, including within UN-REDD countries.

The Art of implementation: Gender and Climate Change

For many years there has been the assumption that the negative impacts of climate change and the efforts to mitigate them have similar effects on both women and men. However, the world has progressively recognized that women and men experience climate change differently, and that gender inequalities worsen the coping capacity of women and societies as a whole.

Gouvernance multi-acteurs et partenariat : Suivi-évaluation participatif et transformation économique dans les Forêts Modèles

La Forêt Modèle est un partenariat volontaire entre tous les acteurs du développement local pour mettre en œuvre la gestion durable, le développement intégré et les bonnes pratiques sur un territoire forestier multidimensionnel. La création des Forêts Modèles permet de concilier l’aménagement durable des forêts et l’amélioration du bien-être des acteurs, et plus particulièrement des populations ayant accès à des ressources forestières.

Basic Forest Carbon Inventory and Accounting: Techniques and Tools

Developing valid and verifiable estimates of forest carbon stocks is a critical activity that enables participation in international reporting programs, emerging carbon credit trading markets, programs such as UN-REDD and REDD+, and a variety of other forest-based mitigation activities at scales from the community to the nation. There are several methods that can be used to develop estimates of forest carbon sequestration, depending on the spatial scale needed and the quality and quantity of available data.

Restoration of Forests and Landscapes - How Countries Can Map and Value Their Restoration Opportunities

About 30 percent of potential global forest cover has been completely cleared and a further 20 percent has been degraded. But the spiral of increasing degradation and poverty can be broken.

A new global assessment used consistent data to map degraded forest lands and restoration opportunities at 1x1 km resolution. Historical and current forest extent was considered along with current land use and population density.

Management planning of protected areas incorporating local people´s livelihoods. For PA managers and stakeholders.

This proposal seeks to train key people in the development and implementation of protected areas management plans that incorporate local people´s livelihoods from the very beginning and with the goal to eliminate conflicts and contradictions with the management and the objectives of the protected areas. These conflicts and contradictions between management and livelihoods (considering management categories governance types,among others) have incremented overtime because they have been traditionally postponed.
