UNDP Nature For Life: Local Action Day – Session 4.2

November 24, 2020 , 10:00 am - 11:45 am CST

Streaming on Live 1

Encore! Originally aired September 28

Tuesday, November 24 | 10:00 AM – 11:45 AM CST (11:00 AM – 12:45 AM EST)

Duration: 105 min

Description: Local action is essential in nature if we are to tackle our planetary emergency; we need an all-of-society approach. We are already seeing action by youth, Indigenous peoples and local communities in every country. This set of sessions will shine a spotlight on these efforts, showcasing success stories, highlighting challenges and obstacles, and showing pathways to scaling up local action to have global impacts.

Session 4.2 Reimagining Conservation: Aligning Nature Conservation and Human Rights

Over the last decades, conservation organizations have been repeatedly challenged to confront allegations of a “fortress mentality” and embrace a more inclusive paradigm, recognizing that conservation of nature will not be achievable in the long-term without the full support of the Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLCs) who live in and around protected and conserved areas.

While numerous examples of successful integrated conservation-development projects do exist across the world, widely divergent views persist on what exactly ‘conservation of nature’ is and should be, as well as by and for whom it should be undertaken. In 2016, the former UN Special Rapporteur Report on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (Ms. Vicky Tauli-Corpuz) produced a thematic report on the relationship between conservation of nature and human rights,  followed by two dedicated sessions of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII 2018, 2019) which convened to review the topic. This session will provide a dialogue space for communities, policymakers and scientists to reset the conversation on nature and human rights towards a new era of collaboration and best practices.
