IUCN Oceania recognises that an integrated and flexible approach is needed to implement the IUCN Global Programme. We are convinced that a holistic delivery approach is needed to meet the targets of the Global Programme.
The Global Programme
The new IUCN Global Programme aims to mobilize and unite communities working for biodiversity conservation, sustainable development and poverty reduction in common efforts to halt biodiversity loss and apply nature-based solutions.
It builds on IUCN’s niche as the world’s authority on biodiversity conservation, nature-based solutions andrelated environmental governance and has three Programme Areas:
- Valuing and Conserving Nature enhances IUCN’s heartland work on biodiversity conservation, emphasizing both tangible and intangible values of nature.
- Effective and Equitable Governance of Nature’s Use consolidates IUCN’s work on people-nature relations, rights and responsibilities, and the political economy of nature.
- Deploying Nature-based Solutions to Global Challenges in Climate, Food and Development expands IUCN’s work on nature’s contribution to tackling problems of sustainable development, particularly in climate change, food security and social and economic development
Oceania Regional Programme
IUCN Oceania recognises that an integrated and flexible approach is needed to implement the IUCN Global Programme. We are convinced that a holistic delivery approach is needed to meet the targets of the Global Programme. The Oceania Regional Programme 2013-2016 outlines the approaches for the Regional Office in the delivery of the programme adopting a “One Programme” approach.
Thus, IUCN Oceania will ensure teams are collaborating across existing programmes and initiatives, and so contribute effectively to the overall delivery of IUCN’s Global Programme 2013-2016 by:
- Contributing to conserving Oceania’s biodiversity though IUCN’s work on
- Protected areas
- Enhancing governance arrangements though IUCN’s work on
- Environmental law and policy
- Environmental economics
- Offering nature-based solutions though IUCN’s work on
- Water and wetlands
- Pacific Mangroves Initiative
- Climate change
- Promoting green economy solutions in the areas of
- Energy – identifying environmentally friendly and equitable solutions
