Manuel des données d' ICCA

Ce manuel a été écrit pour les populations autochtones ou les communautés locales qui ont déterminé que leur territoire ou aire répond aux critères qui définissent une APAC (voir les termes clés), autrement considéré comme un territoire ou une aire dont la gouvernance, gestion et conservation est assurée par une population autochtone ou une communauté locale. Il est aussi conçu pour ceux qui travaillent en étroite collaboration avec les conservateurs d’APAC, tel que les ONG locales qui peuvent souhaiter soumettre des informations concernant une ou plusieurs APAC. Il n’est pas destiné à être utilisé par des gouvernements. Les gouvernements qui souhaitent fournir des informations concernant leurs systèmes d’aires protégées sont orientés vers le manuel d’utilisation de la WDPA.

Le manuel est conçu pour aider les populations autochtones et les communautés locales à inscrire leurs APAC dans la WDPA (Base de données mondiale sur les aires protégées) et/ou l’ICCA Registry (le registre des APAC). Les communautés ont différentes raisons pour inscrire leurs territoires ou aires. Ces raisons comprennent la volonté de sensibiliser aux efforts de conservation et de subsistance, de soutenir le tourisme local, d’aider à protéger des espèces importantes culturellement, ou de démontrer leur leadership parallèlement à d’autres types d’aires protégées.

Herramientas de apoyo para la conservación por pueblos indígenas y comunidades locales (Spanish version of ICCA Toolkit)

The toolkit documents sixteen case studies and highlights innovative tools and approaches developed to help local communities address critical challenges that affect their natural and cultural resources. It includes a diverse set of resources organized around five key themes (documentation, management planning, monitoring and evaluation, communication, and finance and values). The publication also offers a suite of tools to support the effectiveness and viability of ICCAs as governance structures for the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems.

In addition to being a valuable resource to practitioners, the toolkit provides a reminder to policy-makers that the achievement of the emerging post-2015 sustainable development goals (SDGs) will need to be linked to a comprehensive valuation of ecosystem services, as well as to be spearheaded at the grassroots by local civil society initiatives.

Making Waves: Community Solutions, Sustainable Oceans

“The struggle of poor and vulnerable communities against poverty, biodiversity depletion, environmental degradation, climate change devastation and poor governance may be slow and protracted, but their local solutions and innovations guarantee the future of the present and the next generation [...] Additional resource allocation and support to the global movement of local and indigenous land and sea managers is needed from the international community to consolidate local community achievements, and initiate and sustain more local actions together to address global challenges with scaled-up solutions and innovations." – Leonardo Rosario, Trowel Development Foundation

Community - based Chemicals and Waste Management

The proliferation of harmful chemicals is a growing concern for human health and well-being and the global environment.
During its 6th replenishment period (July 2014 to June 2018; GEF-6), GEF continues to play a catalytic role in leveraging budgetary resources to support elimination and reduction of harmful chemicals and waste.
The GEF Small Grants Programme (SGP) is the special window of the GEF providing financial and technical support to communities and civil society organizations for addressing global environmental challenges, while also promoting poverty reduction and sustainable development. In the chemicals and waste focal area, SGP focuses its support to communities at the forefront of chemical threats either as users or consumers, including women and indigenous peoples.
As of April 2017, SGP has supported 565 projects with an investment of more than $16 million in GEF grant funding, leveraging more than $18 million in co-financing from multiple sources. SGP’s chemicals and waste portfolio has focused on:  solid waste management to avoid open burning of waste;  pesticide management in agriculture and organic farming; • reduction of chemicals usage and contamination (such as PCB) in small-scale businesses;   capacity development, awareness raising and knowledge sharing.
