The value of protected areas
    18. 18. 2. The value of protected areas Millennium Development Goals
    19. 19. 2. The value of protected areas of the world’s carbon is stored in protected areas (25-30% for many tropical countries) 312 Gt of terrestrial carbon is in protected areas (23 times the global carbon emissions for 2004) Copenhagen Accord recognizes need to enhance removal of greenhouse gas emissions by forests and provide incentives Climate Change Mitigation
    20. 20. 2. The value of protected areas <ul><li>Climate change mitigation financing: </li></ul><ul><li>Forests and protected areas are a key component of reducing carbon emissions </li></ul><ul><li>In developing countries, protected areas should be a key component of REDD planning. </li></ul><ul><li>Prioritising financing of carbon and protected areas beyond REDD markets </li></ul>Climate Change Mitigation
    21. 21. 2. The value of protected areas <ul><li>Protected Areas: </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthen resiliency of ecosystems </li></ul><ul><li>Provide ecosystem services in the face of increased competition </li></ul><ul><li>Protect against rising sea levels, extreme weather and flooding </li></ul><ul><li>Help species and ecosystems survive by shifting ranges through corridors </li></ul> Climate Change Adaptation
    22. 22. 2. The value of protected areas For example: Coastal wetlands in the USA provide about $23.2 billion a year in protection against flooding from hurricanes. Climate Change Adaptation
    23. 23. 2. The value of protected areas For example: About a third (33 out of 105) of the world's largest cities get a significant amount of their drinking water directly from protected areas. F reshwater Security
    24. 24. 2. The value of protected areas For example: The artisanal reef fishery on Zanzibar provides income to 60,000 fishermen and contributes over 60 per cent of protein consumed by local populations. Food security
    25. 25. 2. The value of protected areas For example: Households adjacent to the Navakavu Marine Protected Area in Fiji have more than double the average household income compared to non-adjacent households. Income Generation
    26. 26. 2. The value of protected areas For example: Peruvians living in intact forests are 278 times less likely to be bitten by Malaria-carrying mosquitoes than people who live in nearby degraded areas . H uman Health
    27. 27. 2. The value of protected areas For example: Shivapuri National Park in Nepal is spiritually significant for the popular Hindu and Buddhist shrines and meditation centres nestled in the natural setting. Cultural and spiritual Access

How it works <ul><li>Short and simple template </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sustain biodiversity, secure livelihoods, address climate change </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consistent with national development priorities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Based on protected area system priorities </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Who should submit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CBD or PoWPA Focal Points </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Indigenous or Local Community Groups </li></ul></ul>
    31. 31. System Scale Expressions of Interest <ul><li>Relevant for countries who have a vision of their comprehensive financial gap based on national planning. </li></ul><ul><li>Financing at this scale is generally $2 million and greater. </li></ul> 3. How it works
