Considering biological and cultural diversity in the context of botanical conservation strategies

Concerns continue to mount regarding potential impacts of global climate change, habitat loss, and other environmental changes on the world´s flora. Over the millennia, peoples and cultures across the world have developed deep and unique relationships to the land and have discovered many valuable uses on plants in their areas. Just as floristic diversity is eroding, so too are cultural and linguistic diversity. UNESCO estimates that 50% of all languages are endangered, with one language being lost every 2 weeks.

La Biodiversidad desde la visión de género de las Mujeres Indígenas

El programa de la UICN a nivel mundial describe claramente la dependencia directa e indirecta de la humanidad sobre la biodiversidad. Así también se conoce que los beneficios de la naturaleza, no son distribuidos equitativamente. En esta lógica las políticas y la gobernanza de la conservación de la biodiversidad deben reconocer efectivamente a estos actores y sus niveles de dependencia, pero además de la gran relevancia que tienen en estas condiciones las mujeres.

Upgrading Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) through National Park Experiences

Since the United Nations General Assembly declared 2005-2014 the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD), ESD aims at providing every individual with the opportunity to acquire the values, competencies, knowledge and skills that enable him or her to contribute to a humane, socially just, economically viable and ecologically sustainable future. ESD is must-to-do to acquire sustainable future for people.

African Indigenous Peoples and improvements to World Heritage nominations

The round-table Knowledge Cafe sets out a series of perspectives related to UN norms and standards, the implementation of UNDRIP in Africa, the role of the UNPFII, the role of IPACC, and the IUCN´s advisory role. The overall aim is to explore how to improve the World Heritage nominations process in Africa, focussing on indigenous institutions as a key component to equitable governance and decision making in cooperation with the National state party and its agencies involved in the design of World Heritage nominations.

Access and Benefit Sharing and Protected Areas: how are they linked?

What exactly is Access and Benefit Sharing and how does it work?
How will new policy and legal frameworks on ABS impact protected areas, and the indigenous peoples and local communities living in and around them?
What can conservation gain from ABS, what can ABS learn from protected areas, and where are the challenges to achieve these gains?

Education for Sustainable China: the collective voice, wisdom and action in schools and communities

Shangri-la Institute for Sustainable Communities (SISC) works to promote social transformation towards sustainability through our Education for a Sustainable China (ESC) programme. ESC is a platform for developing and disseminating Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) practices and theories through local and national projects in China.

The focus of our poster will be examples of our ESD projects implemented in both formal and non-formal sectors. This will include brief introductions to our work in water preservation, community empowerment and climate change education.

Cultural Heritage Management Capacity and Enhanced Biocultural Resilience in High-Value Landscapes

This knowledge café will further strengthen links across the nature-culture divide in protected area management, to bolster biocultural resilience in World Heritage and other high-value landscapes. The proposal builds on the 2008 Barcelona workshop "Bridging the Nature-Culture Divide to Conserve the Diversity of Life". IUCN has a vital interest in integrating approaches to natural and cultural heritage. The initiatives of the IUCN World Heritage Programme and relevant WCPA specialist groups are beginning to get results.

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.
