Description

The workshop achieved five main outputs:

  • An initial collection of case studies of how protected area agencies are currently seeking to integrate protected area sites and systems into national and local efforts to address climate change.
  • A discussion about the tools needed for mainstreaming protected areas into climate responses, including detailed modifications to a draft rapid-assessment tool.
  • Development of a conceptual framework for how protected areas can be integrated into national climate change response strategies
  • Initial discussions identifying how much protection is really required to stabilise the world’s biodiversity and to supply adequate climate and ecosystem services.
  • An agreed list of needs and follow up actions.
