At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you! Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.
The Government of Seychelles-UNDP-GEF Protected Area Finance and Outer Islands projects hosted a Business Planning workshop for Protected Areas in Seychelles in September 2017. In preparation for this training, a database containing examples of terrestrial and marine business plans from around the world and guidelines for their development was produced. We are sharing in this post the Sustainable Financing for Marine Protected Areas: Lessons Learnt from Indonesian MPAs. The report is a case study of Komodo and Ujung Kulon National Parks.

Researchers and practitioners have extensively discussed the potential of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) strategies to help or harm forest-based communities, but less attention has been paid to the gender dimensions of this conservation intervention. Safeguard policies aim to ensure that REDD+ does not harm women, but interventions that do not seek to address gender imbalances at the outset could end up perpetuating them.
A combination of mandatory and voluntary HCV assessment has resulted in a larger proportion of forest concession areas being protected at landscape-level than elsewhere. A benefactor of this situation is Kampar Peninsula in Riau Province, Indonesia: one of the largest remaining peatland forest areas and home to a unique, bio-diverse peat swamp-forest environment. Asia Pacific Resources International Limited's (APRIL) efforts to protect the area’s peat dome through the implementation of a protective ‘plantation ring’ have proven an effective strategy.
Description: Pemuteran Bay Coral Protection Foundation was started in response to the collapse of the local fishing industry of the Pemuteran community in Bali, due in large measure to coral reef loss from sedimentation, rising water temperatures, and unsustainable fishing methods such as reef bombing. The organization oversees more than 70 artificial ‘biorock’ coral reefs, which have restored fish stocks and marine biodiversity. The chain effect of connecting the artificial reefs has helped to rejuvenate local subsistence fishing livelihoods.
The Ngata Toro Community’s 22,300 hectares of traditional lands lie partly within Lore Lindu National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve located on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Since 1993, two local organizations have worked to strengthen traditions, customary laws, and local institutions for sustainable use of forest, land and water resources.
The Fishing Community of Tomia is a community-based organization composed of representatives of fishers’ groups from East Tomia, Indonesia. The organization was established in response to shared community concerns regarding foreign commercial fishing, the use of destructive fishing methods, and a vacuum in local government leadership on the sustainable management of Wakatobi natural resources.
