The following publication draws on presentations and discussions from a specialist workshop held on the Island of Vilm, Germany, 27-31 March 2012, which worked on issues relating to Putting Natural Solutions to Work: Mainstreaming Protected Areas in Climate Change Responses.
Federal Agency for Nature Conservation
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.
