Présentation de Christian Remus Papp - EMICT Forum 2011

  1. 1. On-line tools for Protected Areas Management in the Carpathian Countries 10 November 2011 Seynod, FranceCristian-Remus Papp, WWF DCP
  2. 2. Valuable and critically endangered WWF - Global 200 science-based global ranking of the Earths most biologically outstanding habitats (2001)Carpathians and Danube –priority ecoregions
  3. 3. The Danube-Carpathian Ecoregion
  4. 4. The Carpathians • Carpathian Ecoregion: - over 200.000 km2 • Seven countries • Unique because ….
  5. 5. Carpathians - Unique and Special• Large …. some of the largest unspoiled area in Europe (ousite Russia)• Large areas of well- balanced mosaic landscapes shaped by traditional agriculture and close to nature forestry
  6. 6. The green heart of Europe • Large tracks of natural forests and over 300.000 ha of pristine forests • Rich semi-natural habitats (mountain pastures and hay meadows) .
  7. 7. The green heart of Europe • Home to globally threatened species: the European bison (Bison bonasus), the Tatra Mountain Chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra tatrica) and the Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca). • The last region in Europe with viable populations of large carnivores: about 8,000 brown bears (Ursus arctos), 4,000 wolves (Canis lupus) and 3,000 Lynx (Lynx lynx) can still be found here.
  8. 8. Carpathian Ecoregion - Unique and Special • Critical water source, exceptional water reservoir for the Danube, Tisa and Dnister rivers • Some of the most intact, wild river systems remaining in Europe. • Some of the last floodplain and riverine forests – the most endangered habitat in Europe
  9. 9. 2012 PA4LP Project• 2012 Protected Area for a Living Planet Programme (2012 PA4LP) • Global programme to promote and support the implementation of the PoWPA developed within the CBD
  10. 10. Primary need for development – CBD PoWPAProgramme element 4 – Standards, assessments and monitoring:• Develop and implement an efficient, long-term monitoring system of the outcomes being achieved through protected area systems in relation to the goals and targets of this work programme (CBD PoW PA Activity 4.1.2).Develop and adopt ... appropriate methods, standards, criteria and indicators for evaluating the effectiveness of protected area management and governance, and set up a related database, taking into account the IUCN-WCPA framework for evaluating management effectiveness, and other relevant methodologies, which should be adapted to local conditions (CBD PoW PA Activity 4.2.1) Goal 4.2 - To evaluate and improve the effectiveness of protected areas management• CCPAMETT (http://cpamett.natura2000.ro)
  11. 11. DevelopmentHow?• Online, web based tool, based on the Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT)Why? To:• Contribute to the implementation of the CBD Programme of Work on Protected Areas (PoWPA), e.g. long-term monitoring ( support governments reporting back to the CBD)• Support effective adaptive management in Carpathian protected areas• Support development of an effective Carpathian Network of Protected Areas• Track and monitor progress in the achievement of the PA management effectiveness targets• Help monitor progress towards improving management effectiveness• Help managers track progress in implementing PAs commitments under the CBD
  12. 12. Progress so far• Carpathian Convention COP 3 (Bratislava, Sk) – commitmentto use the CCPAMETT• Use of CCPAMETT (more than 65 PAs in the database)
  13. 13. Strengths• Comprehensive tool, easy to handle• Easy to analyse the results and to generate different types of reports• The collected data is stored in a database, less paper work has to be done• Gives the opportunity to compare the results of a certain PA to other PAs from a country (at national level) or region (within the Carpathians of a specific country)• Internationally embedded links to the CBD, WCMC and the WDPA
  14. 14. Constraints and weaknesses• It might be possible that only one person performs the evaluation (e.g. no internal discussion takes place). Depending on the PA staff, the evaluation can be subjective.• If the internet connection is not reliable, it is recommended to use printed forms as well
  15. 15. More informed – more efficient Clearing House Mechanism for theProtected Areas in theCarpathian Countries
  16. 16. Primary need for development – CBD PoWPA• Goal 4.4 - To ensure that scientific knowledge contributes to the establishment and effectiveness of protected areas and protected area systems Carpathian Countries Protected Area Clearing House Mechanism (CCPACHM) on-line (http://chm.natura2000.ro/), GIS based patform
  17. 17. Target groups and aims• PA and project managers - information/ experience exchange and communication platform• General Public - promoting Carpathians as a unique ecoregion in Europe
