The ICCA Consortium has participated with a small delegation to the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress held in Honolulu (Hawai’i – USA) on 1-10 September 2016.
For a succinct overview of ICCA-relevant important policy results please see the editorial in the Consortium Newsletter no. 12.
The Consortium has worked on and supported several motion. Here are the main ones:
022 – Recognizing, understanding and enhancing the role of indigenous peoples and local communities in tackling the illegal wildlife trade crisis
026 – Protected areas and other areas important for biodiversity in relation to environmentally damaging industrial-scale activities and infrastructure development
029 – Recognizing and respecting the territories and areas conserved by indigenous peoples and local communities (ICCAs) overlapped by protected areas
030 – World Parks Congress 2014: The Promise of Sydney
033 – Safeguarding space for nature and securing our future: developing a post-2020 strategy
034 – Recognising cultural and spiritual significance of nature in protected and conserved areas
The Consortium has organised – among others – the following two events:
1. Conservation Campus: Conserving nature via self-determination and resistance to destructive development in ICCAs
2. Protected Planet Pavilion Session: Everything you always wanted to know about governance of protected areas… but were afraid to ask!
Please consult also the more extensive overall list of events organised by the Consortium and its members and honorary members.
The ICCA Consortium has also participated in the E Alu Pū Global Gathering on August 28-30 prior to the WCC. The event was organised by local Indigenous peoples and the non-profit organisation Kuaʻāina Ulu ʻAuamo (KUA).
