IUCN Congress Hawai‘i Commitments set sail

 

Today, Members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) adopted the Hawai‘i Commitments, an innovative document that sets out the opportunities to meet key conservation challenges identified at the IUCN World Conservation Congress.

 

 

The Hawaii Commitments were shaped by Congress debates and deliberations and were submitted for comment to some 8,500 participants who attended the event. The document  addresses issues such as sustaining world food supplies, maintaining the health of the oceans, wildlife trafficking, engaging with the private sector, and building resilience to climate change.

 

 

The Hawai‘i Commitments highlight nature-based solutions to climate change, such as the restoration of forests and peatlands, as essential components of climate mitigation and adaptation. The document also stresses the role of Indigenous peoples and women from local communities as critical to successfully implementing the Paris Agreement.

 

 

“Nature-based solutions have been shown – in many different settings, in both developed and developing countries – to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, help communities adapt  to climate  change  impacts, reduce the risk of natural disasters, and support sustainable livelihoods,” the Hawaii Commitments document states.

Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, 10 September 2016 (IUCN) – The IUCN World Conservation Congress closed today in Hawaiʻi, setting the global conservation agenda for the next four years and defining a roadmap for the implementation of the historic agreements adopted in 2015.

 

 

The IUCN Congress closed with the presentation of the Hawai'i Commitments. This document, titled “Navigating Island Earth”, was shaped by debates and deliberations over 10 days, and opened for comment to some 10,000 participants from 192 countries.

 

 

It outlines opportunities to address some of the greatest challenges facing nature conservation and calls for a commitment to implement them. It encapsulates the collective commitment by all who attended the Congress to undertake profound transformations in how human societies live on Earth, with particular attention to making our patterns of production and consumption more sustainable.

 

 

“Some of the world’s greatest minds and most dedicated professionals met here at the IUCN Congress to decide on the most urgent action needed to ensure the long-term survival of life on Earth and our planet’s ability to sustain us,” says Inger Andersen, IUCN Director General. “This IUCN Congress has come at a pivotal time in our planet’s history as we find ourselves at a crossroad, facing challenges of unprecedented magnitude.
