Conservation beyond boundaries

The Conservation Beyond Borders session will:
(i) Build on the outcomes of the 2015 dialogue on Transboundary Conservation and Peace-Building towards an action-oriented agenda for transboundary conservation governance and management that informs the adoption of a post-2020 Framework for Biodiversity and relevant work programmes;
(ii) Reflect on a global suite of transboundary initiatives that will promote more effective conservation of transboundary ecosystems (e.g. for migratory species), and address issues leading to biodiversity loss (e.g. illegal cross-border wildlife trade);
(iii) Reflect on a global suite of transboundary and beyond boundaries initiatives that address contemporary global challenges, including climate change/water resources, peace and cooperation, humanity on the move;
(iv) Broaden the discussion beyond the specifics of the DMZ towards a regional action plan for transboundary conservation in the Korean peninsula and adjacent countries and oceans.
(v) Make recommendations for implementation by IUCN, the CBD Secretariat, APAP, and other initiatives and partners in the period leading up to 2020, and for the post -2020 Biodiversity Framework to unlock opportunities for transboundary conservation.
