Climate Change

Conserver les écosystèmes et aménager les territoires littoraux pour réduire les risques de catastrophes naturelles

Ce workshop aborde des questions liées à l’avenir des zones côtières face aux dégradations environnementales engendrées par un développement mal planifié ou maitrisé, associées aux risques liés au changement climatique.

The Korean Initiative for Sustainable Development- “Water and Green Growth” (KOC official session)

OBJECTIVES
- To encourage sharing ideas for sustainable development embracing ‘Green Growth’
- To introduce “Water and Green Growth” activities and devise its long-term prospect
- To discuss the significance of International cooperation in the path to success of “Water and Green Growth” movement
- To understand “Water and Green Growth” activities in the World Water Forum

Low Carbon Green Growth Paradigm and Urban Environmental Policy (KOC official session)

Urban greenhouse gas emissions make up 43% of Korea´s total emissions, but the costs of reducing urban emissions are low, which could lead to an immediate reduction effect. Climate change responses through urban policies are extremely important
- City formation could reduce both energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by placing wind paths, water paths, forest trails, and other natural objects during urban planning stages and constructing low carbon urban infrastructures

Climate Change Adaptation Policy in Korea (KOC official session)

Today´s environmental protection strategies must mitigate the impacts of climate change, which has emerged as a grave threat; therefore past environmental protection strategies must be updated in advance to respond against this new imminent threat
- The need for conservation and management strategies to reduce existing environmental threats and policy planning to improve nature´s restoration ability to overcome climate change

Marine Conservation in Asia and the Pacific: Scoping Pathways for International Dialogue

Over the next decades, climate change and other factors will cause greater stress on the environment and will increase conflicts among states and groups within these states regarding access to and use of natural resources. Trade interests, control over resources and pollution are issues to be solved in dialogue to prevent conflicts, loss of biodiversity and environmental degradation. Security is closely linked to the IUCN core program area of ‘sharing nature’s benefits equitably’.

Climate Change Adaption Tools for Island Communities

By presenting local and regional conservation results, we will demonstrate the importance of informing and empowering communities to make sound decisions about improving the resilience and adaptive capacity of the ecosystems on which they depend for their livelihoods. MCT and its partners developed the Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit to address key challenges faced by communities carrying out adaptation activities.

Using Ecosystems and Traditional Knowledge to Help People Adapt to Climate Change: Building the Evidence Base

Adaptation to climate change comprises a wide range of potential approaches. Proponents of ´ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation´ (EbA) suggest that the maintenance or restoration of natural ecosystems are among the cheapest, most effective, and most readily implemented solutions at our disposal to lessen the impacts of climate change on people. However, there remains a lack of solid evidence to support decision-makers in terms of the contexts in which EbA may be an optimal intervention.

Mainstreaming Environmental Sustainability, Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change

Dealing with the impacts of climate change and natural catastrophes is becoming an increasingly high priority for decision makers across the globe. The amount of global GDP exposed to harm by disasters had tripled from $525.7 billion 40 years ago to $1.58 trillion. Moreover, climate change is expected to increase the risk of disasters, and many of the predicted impacts of climate changes are identical to those being currently addressed by hazard managers, particularly in coastal areas and watercourses.

Building a Global Coalition for Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature

The ecosystem approach is now well-established as a strategy for managing the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in diverse contexts. But until recently, this approach was rarely applied to agricultural landscapes where food production is a principal objective and dominant land use.
