ECOHEALTH 2014 – Connections for Health, Ecosystems and Society
2014-08-11 to 2014-08-15
Montreal, Canada

Ecohealth is a field that strives for "sustainable health of people, wildlife and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding and transdisciplinarity" (IAEH). The growth in interest and scholarly engagement with ecohealth is demonstrated by the strong communities of practice, groups and networks that have developed, by institutional uptake by large organizations such as the Pan-American Health Organization and through the continued development of the EcoHealth journal and International Association of Ecology & Health (IAEH).

Three main themes have been put forward for EcoHealth 2014 Conference:

IUCN World Parks Congress 2014
2014-11-12 to 2014-11-19
Sydney, Australia

Three priority objectives for the Congress have been identified, based on the three foundations of the current IUCN Programme.

The three priority objectives include:

  1. PARKS – Valuing and conserving nature

    The WPC 2014 will strengthen policy and action commitments for the expansion, connectivity and better management of parks and protected areas to cover all areas important for biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  2. PEOPLE – Effective and equitable governance of nature’s use

    The WPC 2014 will foster the equitable governance of parks and protected areas to empower communities (including indigenous peoples) to become involved and to benefit.
  3. PLANET – Deploying nature-based solutions to global challenges

    The WPC 2014 will explore and promote parks and protected areas as natural solutions to global challenges such as climate change, food and water security, health and a green economy.
