Norway is on track to achieve its national biodiversity targets to combat invasive alien species by 2020 | Key highlights from Norway’s Sixth National Report and post-2010 NBSAP

In its Sixth National Report (6NR) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and post-2010 National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP), Norway identifies invasive alien species (IAS), as one of the major threats to biodiversity. Other threats include land conversion and land-use change, climate change and pollution. This best practice highlights the efforts undertaken by Norway, as described in its 6NR and the latest NBSAP, to address IAS in an era of globalization and climate change.

Community Conserved Areas: Legal Framework for the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites (Italy) I IUCN

Considering its relatively limited size, Italy is one of the richest countries in terms of world heritage
sites. Forty-two of its 44 world heritage sites are, however, listed for exceptional cultural value and only
two for outstanding natural value. One of these, the Dolomites, includes the country’s best example
of a community conserved area, a type of governance that IUCN now refers to as ‘indigenous and
community conserved area’ (ICCA).
