Sharing experiences and learning in support of Indigenous Heritage in World Heritage

Recognition of the value of indigenous heritage gained importance in the World Heritage Convention with the creation of Cultural Landscapes in 1992, and its application to Tongariro National Park (New Zealand, 1993) and Uluru-Kata Tjuta (Australia, 1994) – key areas where Aboriginal cultures had been part of the landscape for centuries or millennia. Traditional systems were at the core of conservation and management in those areas and were the basis for their inscription under cultural criteria.

What the Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) could do for building capacities?

Since 2008 there have been repeated calls from developing countries for a commitment of resources to ensure that the emerging Intergovernmental Science‐Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) has a strong focus on capacity building.
Now established, IPBES resolves to prioritize key capacity‐building needs, provide and call for financial and other support for the highest‐priority needs related directly to the Platform’s activities and establish a forum to catalyse financing for such capacity building activities.

Construcción de una estrategia para la Conservación los Territorios Indígenas Amazónicos

Los pueblos indígenas han conservado y mantenido la biodiversidad desde tiempos milenarios, mediante una práctica armónica entre ambiente/naturaleza - territorio y los seres humanos. Los pueblos indígenas están íntimamente relacionados a la biodiversidad y gracias a ella, viven y se ha establecido esta relación.

Living Labs for Climate Change Dialogue

In this session we want to convene a group interested in establishing a network of Living Labs for Climate Change in order to promote cooperation among indigenous and traditional communities and mobilize the tools and support such a network. Please read on and if the idea of being involved in the development of a proposal to implement a network of Living Labs of Climate Change interests you or your organization please join us for a dialogue on moving a proposal forward.

Strengthening Local Governance Systems, to improve Business Climate in the Mesoamerican Forest Sector

The forests of Mesoamerica impact on the quality of life, sustained economic growth and economic mobility of the rural poor and extremely poor populations. These ecosystems are also one of the main opportunities for climate change mitigation and adaptation, and comprise one of the most biodiversity-rich zones on the planet. However, the Mesoamerican region displays some of the highest deforestation and forest degradation rates in the world, coupled with the highest stratums of rural poverty and extreme poverty of the northern and central parts of the hemisphere.

Voices of the North

Videos about the Wildlife, Habitat, Community, Art and Culture of Canada's North, from the point of view of people who live in the North. Interactive presentations will be provided. "Education through adventure" marine expedition video clips will also be included that feature the Sail for Wildlife Migration of the Humpback Whale presented by CWF Learning Institute Fellow Dr. Yves Jean, the Trans-Atlantic Quebec City-St. Malo Sailing Race and the Canadian Wildlife Federation Salish Sea Expedition led by CWF Youth Spokesperson Olympic gold medal rower Adam Kreek. Join us for refreshments and luncheon snacks.

Religious leaders: faith, ethics and human behaviour – the role of religion and values in conservation and climate advocacy

The challenges to the Earth, as a result of human behaviour, population growth, and distorted access to resources and wealth have never been so acute or troubling. scientists have been called on by the United Nations to explain the implications of our behaviour in terms of modelling climate changes, biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. Yet with this information, the UN system is unable to turn around the drivers behind these phenomena – drivers which are found within human will and intention.

Models for Funder-Community Relationships: Grassroots-Led Conservation Strategies

Local communities are on the front lines of conserving the world’s resources. Meanwhile, they have little to no access to the financial resources they need to successfully defend and manage their natural environments. Experienced practitioners of the Greengrants Alliance Funds such as Samdhana Institute and the Center for Socio-Environmental Fund CASA will share successful, locally-based ecological and social justice support funds that effectively channel appropriate resources directly to local conservation leaders.
