    Mainstreaming Systematic Conservation Planning Into National Scale Conservation Planning In Turkey

    NBSAPForumBestPractice_DKM_SCP_20170209.pdf

    Systematic Conservation Planning (SCP) is developed in needs of objective and effective evaluation of where to direct conservation efforts, in last 30 years. It is developed trough contribution of many different scientists and conservation experts.

    Wetland Management And Dalmatian Pelican Conservation In The Mediterranean Basin

    Wetlands are key ecosystems, home for a variety of flora and fauna species and particularly important for the biodiversity they represent therefore, safeguarding, protecting and improving the biological diversity is crucial. The nature conservation best practice is focused at a wetland complex in Albania with the status of a National Park, aiming the conservation of the Dalmatian pelican as a flagship species for the park. The Dalmatian pelican is one of the most important bird species present in Albania all year long.

    Building Capacity With Private Sector-Conservation Skill Share Partnerships

    Earth Skills Network (ESN) is a collaboration between Earthwatch, UNESCO, IUCN & businesses. It connects leaders from the business and conservation sector through mentoring & skill-sharing. Through ESN, Protected Areas (PAs) can access relevant skills within businesses & build constructive dialogue on the need to manage environmental impacts. Through ESN, businesses can identify solutions to pressures on natural resources & nurture sustainable business leadership.

    Developing A Model Marine Protected Area In The Mediterranean, Based On An Integrated And Participatory Approach

    The island of Gyaros, in the Northern Cyclades island complex at the Aegean Sea of Greece, hosts a rare colony of the critically endangered Mediterranean monk seals and a number of unique marine habitats and species. It is an area that local fishermen consider as appropriate for the creation of a marine protected area (MPA). Gyaros serves as a laboratory for the design, establishment and management of a new MPA.

    Building Negotiation Skills In Support Of Sustainable Land And Resource Use Solutions In And Around Protected Areas In Africa

    The Mutual Gains Approach (MGA) to negotiation is a process model that is based on experimental findings and hundreds of real-world cases for negotiating better outcomes for each involved party, while protecting relationships and reputation. A central tenet of the model, and the robust theory that underlies it, is that a vast majority of negotiations in the real world involve parties who have more than one goal or concern in mind, and more than one issue that can be addressed in the agreement they reach.

    Information Systems For Biodiversity And Protected Area Management – Understanding Interactions Between Conservation And Livelihoods

    To improve the long term conservation of biodiversity in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) regions by providing better, more relevant and more accessible information for protected areas management, setting up a network of regional BIOPAMA observatories, developing a Reference Information System to host and facilitate the exchange of data, and to provide the associated capacity building to contribute to, and effectively use, these tools.

    Biodiversity Offsets--An Underutilized Source of Support for Protected Areas

    Biodiversity offsets offer a promising option for promoting the conservation and sustainable management of natural ecosystems on an expanded scale. In an era of often flat--and sometimes declining--governmental support for conservation in general and protected areas in particular, biodiversity offsets can provide an underutilized opportunity to mobilize substantial new funding. This funding can come from public infrastructure accounts (such as for dams and roads) as well as from the private sector (including extractive industries).

    Institutional Complexity And Challenges For The Design Of Payments For Ecosystem Services In Central Africa: Experience From Mbé Watershed In Gabon

    The Mbé River watershed is one of the most biologically diverse sites in Central Africa. It is also Gabon’s most economically important watershed, providing electricity for 60% of the country’s population and providing other ecosystem services such as regulating water flows, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity. These services are presently provided free of charge. The Mbé watershed ecosystem and its biodiversity face a series of growing threats, most notably unregulated hunting, unregulated mining and unsustainable logging.
