Description:

(62) Unveiling the implementation toolbox: IOP’s support tools and methodologies to achieve objectives of the Ramsar Convention

BirdLife International, IUCN, Wetlands International and potentially other International Organization Partners (IOPs) of the Ramsar Convention, will jointly showcase the wealth of instrumental material they have been long developing to contribute on the implementation of the Ramsar Convention and other Multilateral Environmental Agreements. Not many of them have yet reached out to policy makers and/or conservation practitioners. The occasion of the approval of the new Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-2020 is timely to unveil and further disseminate the knowledge that can further guide implementation actions. This event aims also at following up from the Convention on Biological Diversity Secretariat initiative to map out these tools and methodologies, and to identify gaps and needs for technical and scientific support. By speed presentations, each IOP will share existing tool or guidance, their applicability and how they can help deliver specific targets and objectives of the Convention, highlighting the potential for improved synergies by their use and applications.

Lead organization: BirdLife International, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) (and potentially other IOPs, still to be confirmed)
