Technical Sessions

Harmonising the Management of Multi-Internationally Designated Areas Today there are 238 natural World Heritage sites, 2,241 Ramsar sites, 669 Biosphere Reserves and 120 UNESCO Global Geoparks. Some of these overlap, which creates both benefits and challenges due to the various standards required by each designation. A more integrated and effective management of areas with multiple designations is needed and this session will provide both an overview of the work done so far in this regard, and a space to discuss the challenges ahead.

Youth Forum Through a special scholarship funded by the Jeju Self-Governing Province and international partners, a group of students from around the world will be invited to take part in the 2018 World Leaders’ Conservation Forum. The Youth Forum will provide a space for these students to discuss the theme and sub-themes of the WLCF2018 and optimise their active participation in the event.

Access and Benefit Sharing: how to implement the Nagoya Protocol? This session will be a hands-on training on the CBD’s Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing, through which participants will gain a better understanding of the concept of “Access and Benefit Sharing” under the CBD, as well of the main challenges of its implementation. The session will also provide an overview of the relationship between the Nagoya Protocol and other international instruments and processes.

Conservation beyond borders Biodiversity and nature conservation should be considered on a global scale rather than within geopolitical boundaries. The conservation of large ecosystems or the fight against wildlife trafficking are two of the issues this session will explore, showing how a more holistic approach is essential to successful conservation and defining basic principles for such an approach. Peace Parks (and other transboundary protected areas) will provide one of the powerful peace-keeping and peace-building instrument, among many others, that will be explored and analysed during this session with the objective to inspire and promote action in this regard.

Funding conservation A Coalition for Private Investment in Conservation (CPIC) was formed on the occasion of the IUCN World Conservation Congress 2016, involving major players of the finance and the conservation worlds. What has this Coalition achieved, two years after the Congress, and what remains to be done? This session will provide an opportunity to take stock of the first two years of existence of the CPIC, renew commitments and define an action plan for the coming years.
