Riverine wetland ecosystem management for enhancing water resources and ecosystem services in Korea

*In Korea freshwater and river ecosystem serves important function for water resources, conservation and recreation. This natural resources need special attention due to increased land-use pressure, modification, climate change, etc.
*During the Congress Nature+ becomes a theme and our event can deal with important natural resources such as water and freshwater conservation
*Wetlands also provide us water resources and ecosystem service and the event will encourage water ecosystem conservation and wise use of wetlands for stackholders and participants.

Our Protected Planet: Enhancing worldwide knowledge on protected areas in the Republic of Korea, China and Japan

National parks and other protected areas are the cornerstones in most biodiversity conservation efforts. Accurate information on protected areas is required for decision making and to report progress on national and international protected area targets such as the CBD’s Aichi Biodiversity Target 11. This session will demonstrate the value of such information for three biodiversity-rich countries in Asia.

Book launch: "Evidence-based conservation: lessons from the Lower Mekong"

There is a considerable gap between the science of conservation biology and the design and execution of biodiversity conservation projects in the field. Science is often failing to inform the practice of conservation, which remains largely experience-based. The main reason is the poor accessibility of evidence on the effectiveness of different interventions. This is the basis for this book adopting an 'evidence-based approach', modeled on the systematic reviews used in health sciences and now being applied to many policy arenas.

Implementation of restoration on degraded terrestrial and mangrove ecosystems in South East Asia

Restoration of degraded ecosystems and community forest help increase the resilience of local people by improving their additional incomes such as appropriate incentives or rewards for managing forest sustainably.

Restoration, preservation and utilization of Hanon Crater

Hanon is located in Seogwipo City, Jeju Island, The Republic of Korea is the biggest crater among the monogenetic volcanoes of Jeju and the only maar volcano in Korean peninsula.

Exploring the role of the private sector in landscape approaches to conservation and community stewardship

Tea estates being semi-natural plantations can play a major role in the conservation of biodiversity. In many countries some 20% of the land cover within tea estates is under natural vegetation or plantation forestry. Since carbon capture, crops pollination, pest control, biodiversity and soil and water conservation are just some of the services provided by natural ecosystems, protecting natural ecosystems and conducting activities to restore degraded ecosystems become crucial in ensuring healthy agricultural systems.

Working with private sector in biodiversity conservation

ROWA office has started recently engaging with the private sector in West Asia region for biodiversity conservation, in this session ROWA will present its experiences during the last period in engaging with private sector and promoting green economy .

Coastal Ecosystems Management for Resilience

The event will feature short, informal presentations about coastal management initiatives such as; Mangroves for the Future (MFF), Building Coastal Resilience in SE Asia, the ICM projects of Ranong, Thailand Tomini Bay, Indonesia, IUCN’s work at Dhamra Port, India - projects which demonstrate innovative approaches (e.g, to working with local communities, government and private sector).

Can natural water storage in the Himalayas address future needs in a changing climate?

Freshwater resources provided by the Hindu Kush-Himalayan mountains are a critical ecosystem service to more than 1.3 billion people in mountain and downstream areas, serving for various purposes such as hydropower, irrigation and human consumption. The resilience of freshwater provisioning, however, is highly at risk due to climatic and environmental changes. In this regard, innovative approaches and technologies are needed to enable upstream and downstream populations to better cope with the growing challenges. As the Himalayan environment provides water storage in various forms e.g.
