Forest

Young people's role in forest conservation

Young people are living a new stage in history in which they must decide to transform their lifestyle into a sustainable one, creating conditions that will enable them to have better opportunities.
Overall, young people do not have any decision power regarding the use of natural resources. However, they do have an entrepreneurial spirit that allows them to take part in the protection and conservation of forests. These actions have different levels of impact based on their knowledge, institutional support and other influential factors.

The Biodiversity and Climate Imperative to Protect Primary Forests: Implications for Climate Policy

New research confirms the critical importance of keeping primary forests intact to maximize biodiversity and climate benefits. However, climate policy does not prioritize activities that protect primary tropical forests, such as conservation or community based forest management. Industrial logging continues to be promoted as a mitigation activity despite the fact that truly sustainable industrial logging in primary tropical forests is not economically viable.

Great Apes and the Economics of Sustainable Forest Management through REDD

The tropical rainforests where great apes occur hold some of the most spectacular biodiversity on the planet, and they form incredibly important areas for conservation. Nevertheless, the same habitat that houses chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos and orangutans—all of whom are classified as endangered or worse -- is among the fastest disappearing forest in the world and is rapidly being converted to other land uses through extractive industries such as logging, mining and agricultural expansion.

Nature Conservation: What has China been up to?

This is a joint poster exhibition among IUCN China members. While individually, it would highlight key environmental development of members, as a group it would be a picture of the recent trend of nature conservation in China.

Public/Private Partnership on Watershed Restoration

The Jiaquan Spring of Southern China is being commercially exploited for bottled water. Yet the watershed it depends on is facing multiple environmental stresses including soil erosion and loss of original forest cover and biodiversity, which are intricately linked to a broader set of problems in the social and economic fields. How can the delicate balance of business and nature conservation be reached? IUCN China is working with Danone Waters China (DWC) to support the design and development of a long-term road-map for watershed restoration plan in the Jiaquan spring watershed.

Vers une plus grande résilience des écosystèmes: lueurs d'espoir en Afrique subsaharienne

L´Afrique Subsaharienne dispose d´une biodiversité très riche (espèces et écosystèmes) mais qui est très vulnérable à la variabilité et au changement climatique. Aussi cette sous région est peuplée par une population essentiellement rurale (donc dépendant des ressources naturelles) et pauvre.

Global Forest Information Service - Global Forest Related Informationa Sharing Through a Single Gateway

In May 2004, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) agreed that the Global Forest Information Service (GFIS) should become a joint CPF initiative. In response to the request of the CPF, IUFRO, in close collaboration with FAO and CIFOR, prepared a concept paper for the further development of GFIS as a joint CPF initiative. Based on this concept paper the initiative was approved at the 13th Meeting of the CPF on 6th September 2004 in New York. Today GFIS is led by IUFRO, together with FAO, CIFOR, IGRAF and the UNFF Secretariat.

Let´s talk about Biodiversity- campaign to increase awareness on biodiversity and sustainable development in Poland

The poster presents an case of good practice: the national multifaceted and multi-target capaign runned by a accademic institution: the University of Warsaw Centre for Environmental Sudies and supported by the Polish Ministry of the Environment and the Polish Commettee of UNESCO. The campaign consist of variety of events like seminars, conferencs, worksops and competitions for posters to involve journalist and arists in active promotion of biodiversity in media. Also teachers and scientists are encouraged to popularize scientfic knowledge on nature based solutions to climate change.

Long-term forest research on forest ecosystem management in Northeast Asia

Forest provides essential ecosystem goods and services, including wood, food, fodder, water, and shelter for plants and wildlife. However, forest is also prone to degradation from natural and artificial stressors such as climate change, forest fire, and land use change for development. Major issues in Northeast Asian Forest, such as forest restoration, combat to desertification, and biodiversity conservation, and their influences in Northeast Asian Forest range over the borders and call for regional collaboration on making solutions.

Partnership between ASEAN and Korea towards a sustainable green growth

The ASEAN-Korea Environmental Cooperation Project (AKECOP) has seen growth throughout the years. The Project has gone through a lot of changes since it started its activities in Phase I (July 2000~June 2005) and Phase II (June 2005~June 2008) under the theme "Restoration of Degraded Forest Ecosystem in the Southeast Asian Tropical Region" up to Phase III (July 2008~June 2011) under the theme "Restoration of Degraded Terrestrial and Mangrove Forest Ecosystems in ASEAN Region".
