Come up with a proposal on how to protect our biodiversity?

Seminars informing/protecting our biodiversity


Youth organization regarding the protection of biodiversity
Documentation/posters through social media about conserving the
biodiversity
Community service aiming to protect our wildlife and forest

Research in the internet about the world organizations effort on how to


solve the loss of biodiversity?

International Organizations and Biodiversity Conservation


The Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, or the Ramsar Convention,
provided a framework for the conservation and wise use of wetlands, particularly ones
of importance for waterfowl; the list of Ramsar sites in 2011 numbered 1952.

The Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage,
or the World Heritage Convention, oversees the preservation of sites that are valuable
to the entire world citizenry, whether natural or cultural. Adopted and administered by
UNESCO, the list in 2011 contained 936 properties.

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora
(CITES) entered into force in 1975, to monitor and regulate the interstate transport of
wild animals and plants to ensure sustainability.

The Convention on Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) was signed in 1979 to
regulate the conservation and management of migratory species. Administered by
UNEP, CMS develops and promotes regional and global agreements related to sp0ecific
migratory species, among which are bats, cetaceans, and gorillas.

International Organizations and Scientific Research Cooperation in Biodiversity


The WRI, a policy research institute addressing global resource and environmental
issues founded in Washington, DC, in 1982, was a key organizer of both the 1995 Global
Biodiversity Assessment and the MA. WRI collaborates with UN agencies to produce the
World Resources Report biannually

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), an international


nongovernmental institute, founded in 1972 near Vienna, Austria, conducts systems
analysis research on global problems, including evolution, land use, and ecosystem
services.

The Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) and the Asia-Pacific
Network for Global Change Research (APN) are intergovernmental organizations serving
as hubs for networks of research institutions working on global change issues in the
Americas and the Asia-Pacific region, respectively. Both organizations promote science
that cannot be conducted by any one country alone through research grants to
international teams, scientific meetings, and capacity building. Biodiversity and
ecosystems are key elements of their agendas.
