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.

Ocean +

The world has made tremendous progress in reducing poverty, but significantly less in managing the environment sustainably, particularly the ocean environment. Problems like pollution, overexploitation of fish stocks, biodiversity loss, overuse of water and land threaten countries´ development efforts.

Island Leadership on Global Challenges

It is estimated that the world´s population will reach 9 billion by 2050. As a result countries are looking for innovative methods to develop the future in a green sustainable way, and address growing challenges related to safe drinking water, food security, and economic prosperity and solidarity. As island nations become more involved in the world economy and open their boarders for trade, fragile island ecosystems are being inundated by invasive alien species.

Health and Ecosystems – Understanding Linkages to Advance Public Health and Conservation Outcomes in Policy and Practice

While important work enhancing our understanding of a range of ecosystem services continues to expand, our understanding of the relationships between the state of natural systems and public health outcomes merits much more attention. For its part, the public health community has not systematically considered the role that natural ecosystems may play in affecting the outcomes they focus on. Similarly, the conservation community has not systematically considered how loss or conservation of natural ecosystems may be impacting human health.

Forest Partnerships, big and small, that really work!

Explore innovative forest partnerships, reflect on the trade-offs and challenges partnerships face, and work together to distill the ingredients for success together with the IUCN Forest Programme, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), the International Model Forest Network (IMFN) and the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA). Simultaneous interpretation in French, Korean and Spanish will be provided.

Rights for REDD+ or REDD+ for rights?: successful experiences and remaining challenges

One of the most controversial issues on REDD+ is the one related to the clarification of the rights over the land, trees; rights on the use, right on the carbon. The range of positions on this debate is broad and diverse making agreements difficult at local, national and international level. REDD+ is a new terminology but what is understood as REDD activities are forest practices that indigenous peoples and forest practitioners have carry out for long.

Enhancing Resilience with Nature: Translating the Science and Practice of Ecosystem Restoration into Policy

Translating the science of resilience in landscapes into practice will demand working with stakeholders in demonstration projects to undertake joint learning on how to build resilience, what the barriers are and how to best communicate concepts and ideas on resilience.

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.
