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.

Ecological restoration of damaged National Park Slope

A technology using continuous fiber soil reinforcement system for the creation of ecologcal restoration in a damaged area has been developed and introduced. the continuous fiber soil reinforcement is an enviromentally friendly slope protection technique that continuous fiber soil reinforced layers are constructed with green plantation on cut slope.

Find and Restore the Forgotten Acres: A World of Opportunity for Forest and Landscape Restoration

More than two billion hectares worldwide offer opportunities for restoration — an area larger than South America.

With this comes substantial potential to achieve the "triple win": increasing the flow of ecosystem goods and services people need (poverty reduction, food security), strengthened resilience of communities and ecosystems (adaptation), and enhancement of carbon stocks (mitigation).

Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO): One Asia for Green Asia

We would like to organize a Workshop on establishing AFoCO (Asian Forest Cooperation Organization), a regional organization, according to the "Agreement" to be adopted and ratified by the ASEAN Member States and Republic of Korea (ROK) this year. Included in our knowledge products are the accomplishments of what we have done through cooperation between ASEAN and ROK and the progress in the establishment of AFoCO. AFoCO´s vision, objective and legal status, structure and organizational chart, and areas of cooperation will be also highlighted.

Community Based Mangrove Restoration in Palk Bay

This presentation will explain about how a mangrove restoration project has been successfully benefit the livelihood of fisher community. The project is proceeding with the public participation in multiple ways towards long‐term conservation. The poster will also explain about the major threats of mangroves how the threats were removed in selected sites. The poster will have the time lapse photos that were taken from the project area, which will show how the mangroves are regenerated using ecological regeneration method.

Development and promotion of local community through conservation of evergreen broad-leaved forest in east Asia.

Evergreen broad-leaved forests are found continuously from tropical to warm-temperate region in east Asia, especially lucidophylolus forests in east Asia have several specific traits to adopt northern limit of the forests. However, primeval lucidophyllous forests have endangered due to development and overuse of human activities in whole east Asian countries. We have started a model project to restore natural forest from commercial forest with multi-stakeholders, and to develop and promotion of local community in harmony with nature in Aya town, Miyazaki prefecture, southern Japan.

Management effectiveness and connectivity to promote resilience of protected areas and biodiversity conservation in the climate change context.

Mexico´s National Commission for Protected Areas (CONANP in Spanish) is a federal institution in charge of the management and protection of the country´s protected areas. In addition to working towards long-term conservation of nature and its associated ecosystem services and cultural values, protected areas present the unique opportunity to support national climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.

Solar Cooking and Its Contribution to Resilience - Environmental, Social, and Economic

More than a billion households around the world depend on wood, charcoal and other biomass for their daily cooking, leading to respiratory disease and deaths, wasting of meager household incomes spent on fuel, time lost collecting wood, in addition to land degradation, deforestation and biodiversity loss from gathering fuelwood and a significant global contribution to climate change. Solar thermal cooking offers a healthy, no-cost, pollution-free, ecosystem-friendly alternative to biomass cooking. This poster will demonstrate how substituting the sun for wood or charcoal cooking can protect forests, land and biodiversity. It will introduce the multiple resilience benefits of solar cooking – human health, economic, community, ecosystem and planetary. The poster will draw on examples of solar cooking projects around the world and their contributions, particularly recent projects in the Dominican Republic and Haiti of Solar Household Energy, The Nature Conservancy and Grupo Jaragua in which solar cooking is being introduced to reduce the harvest of wood for cooking and charcoal. In sun-rich regions, solar thermal cooking should be one of the tools available to increase the health and resilience of people, communities, ecosystems and the planet.

Creating Open Education Resources to Share Nature's Benefits

Resilience is dependent on the ability to work together, to share resources and success stories and to learn from one another, without barriers. To value and conserve biodiversity and inspire people to share nature's benefits fairly and equitably, we need to provide open education resources, which can be accessed by anyone, anywhere, anytime. These resources need to be user-friendly, up to date, practical, inspiring and representative of our natural diversity.

A "mini" Forests Dialogue: Multi-stakeholder reflections on challenges and opportunities of the REDD+ Readiness phase

A "mini dialogue" is proposed in collaboration with The Forests Dialogue (TFD). Over the past years, TFD and IUCN have jointly organised many multi-stakeholder dialogues on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) and other crucial forest issues. TFD dialogues bring together forest leaders representing main stakeholder groups in the forest sector, to build relationships based on trust, commitment and understanding.
