Biodiversity and Integrated Pest Management: Working Together for a Sustainable Future (Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, Sintesa Peninsula Hotel, from Jul 04, 2013 12:00 AM to Jul 07, 2013 12:00 AM) by Portal Web Editor
Balancing biodiversity preservation with food production presents a challenge. If we are to survive as a species, food production is paramount. But the gradual destruction of forests, watersheds, and other natural habitats in order to produce that food could lead to the eventual demise of our natural resource wealth. Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an ecological approach to suppressing pest species, employs tactics that cause the least ecological disruption. There is a need and urgency for proponents of IPM and biodiversity to work together, but they have rarely been considered as partners for a sustainable future. This conference aims to bridge this divide by bringing together these two key groups.

Local Action, Innovation, and Empowerment for Environmental Sustainability (Online E-Discussion, from May 13, 2013 12:00 AM to May 26, 2013 12:00 AM) by Portal Web Editor
While countries around the world strive to meet their Millennium Development Goal targets, the process of developing a new set of goals for beyond 2015 has already begun. Imagine the world you want in 2050. What changes will be necessary to put global development on the path to building a more just, equitable world? The United Nations system is working with governments and civil society to build on the momentum generated by the MDGs, and to design an ambitious post-2015 development agenda that delivers a sustainable future for all. This message comes from FRAMEweb member Eva Gurria of the UNDP Equator Initiative.
Embedding Sustainability In Organisational Culture: Making Cities Liveable Conference (2013 Novotel, Melbourne, St Kilda, from Jun 17, 2013 12:00 AM to Jun 19, 2013 12:00 AM) by Portal Web Editor
Leaders are increasingly recognising that an effective sustainability strategy requires everyone to be engaged and aligned, and for sustainability to be embedded in the culture of the organisation. This raises questions as to how we define a culture of sustainability, how we measure it, and how we create it. Environmental and organisational psychologist Tim Cotter will present at the 6th Making Cities Liveable Conference, in conjunction with the Sustainable Transformation Conference. The presentation will address a model which defines the key elements of a culture of sustainability, including the 13 key enablers that need to be present in order for such a culture to develop. These enablers are a combination of the psychological and attitudinal drivers of sustainable behaviour, as well as the support mechanisms that encourage sustainability within the organisation.
Wildlife Conservation in Botswana's Okavango Delta: ABCG Brown Bag (World Wildlife Fund-US, Room 2002, 1250 24th St, NW, Washington, DC, 20037, from May 14, 2013 12:30 PM to May 14, 2013 01:30 PM) by Portal Web Editor
Rich in biodiversity and a world class destination for ecotourists, Botswana is often hailed as a conservation success story. But recent research has indicated that large mammal populations are declining, and growth in the agriculture industry threatens the long-term persistence of wildlife in community-held areas. In this presentation, Ms. Stoner will explain why Botswana's Okavango Delta is a unique and important place for wildlife conservation, and why international attention plays an important role in its continued protection. Using research performed in 1995 and 2012, she will characterize both the challenges and opportunities for conservationists in the future, with a particular focus on pastoral communities.
ABCG Event: Innovative Mobile, Cloud and Web-Mapping Technologies for Chimpanzee Conservation (World Wildlife Fund 1250 24th Street, NW Conference Room 2004B Washington, DC 20037, from Apr 23, 2013 12:00 PM to Apr 23, 2013 01:00 PM) by Portal Web Editor
The mission focus of the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is to protect with partners 85 percent of chimpanzees and their habitats in Africa. This is an ambitious challenge and can only be achieved through engaging in strategic partnerships and leveraging what we have learned at the landscape level, including the use of technology, to scale up and make a difference in larger chimpanzee ranges. Using case studies from Tanzania, Uganda and DRC, Dr. Pintea will highlight emerging technologies that promise to revolutionize the ways we collaborate to map and monitor habitats and threats, from the village to Africa scale. This will include community based forest and wildlife monitoring using the Open Data Kit (ODK) app and Android smartphones and tablets; modeling biomass and species distribution using Earth Engine API, Google's parallel processing platform; accessing 60-cm DigitalGlobe satellite imagery on tablets in remote areas without internet connections through Google Earth Portables, and sharing maps over a variety of devices using ESRI ArcGIS Online and Google Maps Engine. Dr. Pintea will discuss lessons learned from community engagement, technology transfer and the actual use of data in supporting conservation decisions.

Unsustainable bush meat hunting in the Congo Basin is a topic of many publications, workshops and discussions. Bonobo, by Craig SholleyThere is a general understanding that development of alternative livelihoods is needed if we want to mitigate the impacts of unsustainable bush meat hunting and trade. For Central Africa, great apes and elephants are amongst such species. The escalating illegal hunting and demise of key species' populations is an indication of conservation failing to meet its crucial goals. In this talk, Jef Dupain will present the case of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The formal donor community is increasingly recognizing the diaspora community as a credible and meaningful contributor to development. Given the significant contribution of diaspora communities, a key issue facing the donor community has become how to engage and partner effectively with diasporas? In this area of technological hyper-development, web portals have become omnipresent in any development venture and diaspora-driven development is not different. This seminar will present two such portals--Homestrings, a private investment platform, and Africa Rural Connect, an online global philanthropic network--and examine their effectiveness in engaging diasporas in development.
Biodiversity Offsets and the credit market in the State of Victoria, Australia (Webinar, from Dec 17, 2012 11:00 AM to Dec 17, 2012 11:00 AM) by Portal Web Editor
Recognised as a global leader in its approach to biodiversity offsets, Victoria's Native Vegetation Management Framework aims to reverse the long term decline in the extent and quality of native vegetation, leading to a net gain, across the entire landscape. The approach combines a no net loss regulatory framework with an offset credit market, which enables landowners to generate native vegetation credits by permanently protecting and improving biodiversity on their land and to sell credits to projects requiring offsets. A government operated service, BushBroker matches project offset requirements with landowners with suitable credits.

Speakers will review the science supporting the need to invest in improved management of rainfall, soils, and other natural resources to ensure that Feed the Future investments—including those in fertilizer and improved seeds—do not become marginalized. We will present evidence that indicates that we can achieve significant increases in productivity and resiliency when fertilizer and improved seed are used in tandem with appropriate natural resource management practices.
