Describe the results/achievements of the actions taken: 
This report was prepared by Stan Stevens, IUCN Members' focal point for WCC Resolution 6.030. In 2019 Members raised awareness about the Resolution and carried out diverse actions fostering recognition and respect for ICCAs, including overlapped ones. Work continues to develop an IUCN WCPA Best Practice Protected Area Guidelines Series volume. The stream on governance at the 3rd Latin American and Caribbean Congress on Protected Areas devoted one session to case studies of recognition of ICCAs overlapped by protected areas. The ICCA Consortium Latin America issued a declaration to the Congress that included a call for better implementation of Res. 6.030 and for global and regional monitoring of the implementation of this and other IUCN policies on ICCAs. ICCA national and regional networks were strengthened, particularly in Southeast Asia, South Asia, West and Central Asia, and Latin America. Field activities included ICCA mapping and documentation in India, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Iran; development of ICCA plans in India; ICCA registration in Indonesia; and advocacy for supportive national laws in the Philippines, Indonesia, Iran, and Myanmar.

What challenges/obstacles have been encountered in the implementation of this Resolution and how were they overcome : 
Challenges: lack of awareness of Res. 6.030; inappropriate national protected area laws, policies, and practices; lack of ICCA mapping and documentation capacity. Responses: awareness raising, capacity building, building national and regional ICCA networks, advocacy for appropriate national laws and policies, developing guidance, and documenting and mapping overlapped ICCAs.

NTFP-EP will also organise a Youth and Forest Congress regional event in which ICCAs will be a major theme and a regional Webinar series on ICCAs.

NTFP-EP also will participate in the national ICCA network in the Philippines and will organize a national ICCA Workshop in Cambodia.
