Gestion communautaire des ressources naturelles au Bénin: cas de la vallée du sitatunga

CREDI-ONG est une organisation non gouvernementale s´investissant principalement dans la promotion de l´aquaculture et la protection de l´environnement. Depuis 2006, elle s´est engagée dans un processus de création d´une réserve naturelle communautaire dénommée « la Vallée du Sitatunga ». D´une superficie d'un millier d´hectares, la Vallée du Sitatunga s´étend sur les communes d´Abomey-Calavi et de Sô-Ava.

Leveraging Markets for Conservation: Removing the Roadblocks to Scaling up.

Private sector has long been blamed as the foe of conservation, and not without reasons. The unprecedented occurrence of floods, drought, poverty and conflicts are the outcomes of our collective neglect of nature. Businesses have increasingly sought green credentials, some as public relations and others for legitimate concerns as to the sustainability of the landscape and communities they so heavily depend on for their supplies.

Proyectos de Infraestructura y Conservación de la Biodiversidad: respuestas sostenibles al crecimiento económico tradicional

Los países en desarrollo que cuentan con una amplia biodiversidad se enfrentan al desarrollo de grandes obras de infraestructura que promueven los modelos de desarrollo tradicional basados en el crecimiento económico continuo. Proyectos de infraestructura como IIRSA en la región Sudamericana, que tiene como objetivo mejorar la integración de los países en esta región, pueden llevar así mismo a generar graves impactos ambientales, en biomas de gran importancia como el Amazónico, tales como degradación de bosques, introducción de especies exóticas, entre otros.

Conocimientos tradicionales para el mundo.

Gran parte de la población mundial experimenta algún tipo de impacto por el cambio climático. Heladas y olas de frío, alteración en los regímenes de lluvias estacionales, sequías prolongadas, cambios en la duración de las estaciones, desplazamiento de los campos de cultivo y pérdida de semillas son, entre otras, consecuencias de este fenómeno.
En la región, los ecosistemas andinos y amazónicos, su biodiversidad y sus agro-ecosistemas están siendo afectados. Como muestra de ello, las poblaciones enfrentan problemas de acceso y disponibilidad de recursos naturales.

Contribution to a Brazilian National Road Map to implement the outcome of CBD COP10

The main purpose of this activity in Brazil is to contribute to the development of a national biodiversity strategy to fulfill the demands, at a national level, of the CBD Strategic Plan for the Post-2010 Period, as approved in Nagoya at COP10.

Building on an existing partnership between IUCN and the Brazilian Environment Ministry, this project aims to bring together stakeholders from across government, business, indigenous people, civil society and academia to design a refreshed national biodiversity strategy and design a process of implementing and monitoring it.

Strengthening biodiversity in climate change mitigation and adaptation projects

Today, more and more initiatives, programmes and funds develop on national and international levels that support climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. As a result the number of projects related to REDD+ or the conservation of climate relevant ecosystems increases constantly. However, in some instances, for example, where afforestation leads to the establishment of monocultures or the introduction of exogenous trees, climate projects may have negative impacts on biodiversity.

World Heritage Areas as learning landscapes - turning research results into management action

The World Heritage Centre has proposed that, "World Heritage properties can serve as laboratories where monitoring, mitigation and adaptation processes can be applied, tested and improved. They can partner with relevant organizations in field activities on mitigation and adaptation strategies, methodologies, tools and/or pilot projects". While this proposal was developed in the context of climate change, its logic extends to all aspects of the sustainable management of World Heritage Areas to achieve sustainable environmental, social and economic outcomes.

Towards Greater Equity and Sustainability: Building the Union´s Capacity and Knowledge for Natural resource Governance

By bringing together a broad spectrum of participants from IUCN Secretariat, members, commissions, government agencies, and indigenous and community organizations, we will ensure that diverse perspectives have a voice and are able to enrich IUCN’s knowledge on governance. The discussion and analysis of the challenges, opportunities and lessons on governance will be based on practical experiences of IUCN, members and others. Participants will explore governance principles, in order to develop a shared understanding of the elements of a common governance framework.

Law and governance for REDD+

In partnership with the World Resources Institute, ClientEarth, the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law, the IUCN Regional Office for Mesoamerican, the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law, the International Development Law Organization, the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law, GLOBE International and Conservational International-Peru, the IUCN Environmental Law Centre (IUCN-ELC) has invited a range of expert lawyers and organizations doing legal work related to REDD+ to participate in this event.

Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, Jamaica: Resilience through Diversity and Partnerships

This poster tells the story of a national park in a country which values diversity and partnerships and the role they play in resilience. Jamaica´s motto states, "Out of Many, One People" and our black, green and gold flag symbolises the hope within the cultural and natural resources of the island: "the sun shineth, the land is green and the people are strong and creative". We will provide examples of challenges weathered by the forest ecosystems and park management.
