Advocating for Indigenous Rights: From Local Indigenous Communities to Global Action

Advocacy of indigenous rights takes on many forms. From community organization and activism, to legal and policy advocacy, the progress regarding the rights of indigenous peoples has required numerous tools and numerous strategies. This knowledge café is a dynamic exploration of those tools and strategies.

Dryland Biodiversity: Mobilizing the Union for Conservation through Sustainable Land Management

Desertification, or “land degradation in the drylands”, is a major global environmental threat that affects the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people. The process of desertification is also closely related to dryland biodiversity loss. Dryland Biodiversity is widely valued, but often unconsciously, and development policies frequently put this biodiversity at risk. Low investment in these areas contributes to a paucity of data that leaves a major gap in understanding the risks and threats to dryland biodiversity.

Whakatane Mechanism: a multi-stakeholder approach to solving human rights issues in protected areas? (CEESP official session)

Two Whakatane Assessments have been conducted for the first time in 2011 and 2012. They are an ambitious first step towards creating a systematic framework for assessing and contributing to the solution of human rights issues linked with protected areas. This is a concrete contribution to IUCN´s thematic areas Sharing Nature´s benefits fairly and equitably and Managing ecosystems for improved food security. Respect for human rights and community management is crucial for resilience of ecosystem and livelihoods in the face of development and climate change.

Understanding the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-sharing

Access and benefit sharing (ABS) refers to the process by which genetic resources are accessed and the benefits that result from their use are shared between those who provide the resources (providers, i.e. States, communities within those States) and those who use them (users, i.e. researchers, industries). It also relates to the traditional knowledge of indigenous and local communities (ILCs) associated with those genetic resources. ABS has the potential to enable States and their ILCs to conserve and sustainably use their biological diversity and to be rewarded for such efforts.

Indigenous Community Engagement in Tourism & World Heritage

This workshop will focus on tourism and local people in the context of nominations
and the monitoring of existing World Heritage sites globally.

Towards a collaborative partnership on sustainable wildlife management

The collaboration is an innovative way of organizing actions of various stakeholders to reach one common goal – achieve sustainability in the utilization of wildlife resources for the benefit of nature and humans. Each partner has its own field of expertise and by sharing this know-how and providing reliable data to the decision makers, the common challenges can be recognized and objectives will be reached more efficiently. There is a connection between ecosystem management and services, food security and greening the world economy, such as in the bushmeat case.

Training on the implementation of rights-based approaches to conservation

Various groups and organizations, from the local to the global spheres, have attempted to shift legal frameworks, policies and practices towards conservation objectives factoring (human) rights considerations in their decision-making processes in order to promote biodiversity conservation and at the same time secure the rights of people. This has been referred to as rights-based approaches to conservation (RBAs).

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.
