The IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 is a landmark global forum on protected areas. The Congress will share knowledge and innovation, setting the agenda for protected areas conservation for the decade to come. BIOPAMA supports the objective of the IUCN World Parks Congress Capacity Development theme. Learn on this page about BIOPAMA's plans and contribution for the IUCN WPC and the latest news.
Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) regions are remarkably rich in biodiversity, and though covering a huge portion of the Earth, are connected by the most pressing challenges faced today. BIOPAMA is actively engaging partners across all three regions with the aim of supporting better conservation and management of both marine and terrestrial biodiversity in and around protected areas.
The country reports on marine and terrestrial protected areas status have been developed by UNEP-WCMC (United Nations Environment Programme - World Conservation Monitoring Centre) based on the data available in their World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA). BIOPAMA has made a major contribution to the effort of improving data on protected areas in the countries in Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP).
