By enabling local communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change based on their specific environmental, social, and economic contexts, the Community-Based Adaptation Programme (CBA) has helped enhance climate resilie...
This publication provides a valuable account of how participation of local communities in the conservation of threatened species yields positive environmental and socio-economic results. Our planet is undergoing another mass extinction due to reasons widely known, including human activities such as deforestation, hunting, and overfishing.

It defines a new paradigm of ocean economy, one that is in balance with the long-term capacity of the assets, goods and services of marine ecosystems, and that considers social inclusiveness. This p...
In this publication, the GEF Small Grants Programme, implemented by UNDP, features women as environmental stewards in case studies about biodiversity conservation, climate change, land degradation, international waters and chemicals and waste management. These examples show action from the ground up and demonstrate the importance of investing in women’s leadership and technical skills for improved environmental benefits and sustainable development, while challenging traditional gender norms that often prevent women from taking leadership roles or from having access and control over the natur...
In 2021, a guidebook for the Other effective area-based conservation measure (OECM) in Colombia was launched to help practitioners identify, strengthen and report OECMs in the country. OECMs present major opportunities in recognizing important contributions to biodiversity conservation that are happening outside of government-recognized protected areas and thus, deepen representativeness and connectivity across systems of protected and conserved areas. The guide consists of three major parts. The first part explains the international context of the OECMs and its link to the Colombian sphere. T...
