Aboriginal water values and management in northern Australia
 
14:17
As part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program, we documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia—where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people's water requirements. Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment.

Planning for Healthy Country in the Arafura Swamp region of Arnhem Land
 
06:33
The Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation (ASRAC) recently launched their 10-year Healthy Country Plan, with support from Bush Heritage Australia, to protect Aboriginal culture, knowledge and ecosystems across 1.2 million hectares of East Arnhem Land. “For our people, land, culture and country are never separate. Bringing many partners together to protect our law and culture is really important,” says ASRAC Chair Otto Bulmaniya Campion. Bush Heritage Australia’s Chief Executive, Gerard O’Neill, says that Aboriginal partnerships are a growing part of our national conservation strategy. “We are extremely privileged to be working with Yolngu and Bi Traditional Owners and ranger groups in helping them keep their country healthy and cultural heritage protected.” Our 24 active Aboriginal partnerships now account for 4.9 million hectares of land being protected for conservation.

Rights and Resources: Indigenous Communities and Environmental Conservation #SkollWF 2017
 
01:15:44
Indigenous people are often considered the world’s best stewards of land. But lack of clear legal rights to property and land use has led to environmental exploitation including deforestation, extractive industrial waste, and pollution. This session will explore tensions between indigenous peoples’ land rights and development–or protection–of the land by government, corporations, and conservation organizations. It will also highlight successful collaborations between these actors and indigenous people. Nicole Rycroft - Moderator Founder and Executive Director, Canopy Mandy Gull - Speaker Deputy Chief, Cree First Nation of WasWanipi Victor López Illescas - Speaker Executive Director, Ut'z Che' - Guatemalan Community Forestry Association Flaviano Bianchini - Speaker Founder and Director, Source International Nicole Rycroft - Moderator Founder and Executive Director, Canopy Changemakers from around the globe and across all sectors gather each year in Oxford, England for the Skoll World Forum to share new ideas, new perspectives, and ultimately, new relationships built on trust and a mutual desire for human progress. Over the span of one week, this community tackles the thorniest challenges through the lens of social entrepreneurship.

Birriliburu Rangers back on country in West Australian desert (extended)
 
08:42
In April 2013, Birriliburu in Western Australia was declared an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) under a Federal Government program, enabling Traditional Owners to manage their land as a reserve. Since that time, Bush Heritage has been fostering a partnership with the Martu people through their organisation Mungarlu Ngurrankatja Rirraunkaja (MNR) and program managers from Central Desert Land & Community. Employing Traditional Owners from Wiluna and other communities, the Indigenous Ranger Program enables Martu people to manage their country and protect its outstanding conservation values. The program brings together traditional knowledge and science; providing an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange and better social, economic and environmental outcomes for the people and their land. The Birriliburu IPA is vast; at 6.6 million hectares, it’s nearly the size of Tasmania. Given this size, strategic management areas have been identified around significant conservation, cultural and heritage assets. Katjarra (Carnarvon Range), in the south-western pocket of Birriliburu, is one such area – where Birriliburu rangers are leading fire management, threatened species, feral animal and bush tucker work.

National Water Account 2013–14
 
03:11
In our variable climate, as our population increases and industries change, competition for Australia’s precious water resources intensifies. To ensure we have enough water for everyone, it is important to account for how water is managed across Australia. We need to know how much water is available, where it is, and how it’s being used. The Bureau of Meteorology’s National Water Account provides an annual picture of water availability. It plays a critical role in the planning and decision-making processes of governments and industry. This video summarises the key findings of the National Water Account 2014 from a national perspective. For more information, go to http://www.bom.gov.au/water/nwa/2014/

Enhancing Resilience to Climate and Ecosystem Changes: The Ghana Model
 
11:59
This UNU research project focuses on the semi-arid region of northern Ghana where the change impacts have been severely felt in forms of unpredictable floods and drought. There are three parts to this research. First, to forecast and assess the impacts of climate and ecosystem change on agricultural production. Second, to undertake a risk assessment of extreme weather events and introduction of adaptive water resource management methods. Third, to plan and implement capacity development programs enabling local residents and professionals to utilize the assessment results derived from research activities. The goal of this project is to propose effective and implementable measures to build an integrated resilience enhancement strategy. This "Ghana model" can potentially be applied across Africa.

Looking Back to Look Forward: A case study of Aboriginal ranger work in NE Arnhem Land
 
27:43
Indigenous rangers play a critical role in the sustainable management of Australia’s conservation and biodiversity estate and represent a significant job sector in Indigenous communities nationally. Over the past twenty years, there has been increased government investment in supporting the burgeoning number of Indigenous ranger programs (currently estimated at 95 groups1) with the aim of achieving multiple social outcomes and biodiversity goals enshrined in Australia’s international commitments (e.g. Convention on Biological Diversity). These Indigenous ranger programs have emerged as a key site of negotiation for Indigenous communities to practice and demonstrate their custodial rights and responsibilities for ‘country’ whilst creating education and training and employment opportunities in partnership arrangements with governments and others. In the development of such partnerships, the role of Indigenous rangers underpins the mutually productive and beneficial translation of Indigenous knowledge and practices of ‘caring for country’ and western-style land and water management. In this seminar, I present collaborative research into a particular case of Yolngu Aboriginal ranger work through the Yolngu organization, the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation (Dhimurru), in North-east Arnhem Land. I report on the first stages of a collaborative project involving Dhimurru members, Yolngu land and sea managers and others which aims to identify and understand the key design principles and success factors of Dhimurru’s ranger program and its unique Yolngu Ranger role. In this project, we consider the development of Dhimurru over the past two decades and ask: 1. How does Yolngu ranger work contribute to achieving Yolngu aspirations for land and water management? 2. What is the ‘value’ of Yolngu ranger work in achieving Dhimurru’s strategic goals for land and water management? About Dr Margaret Ayre Dr Margaret Ayre is interested in knowledge making in the context of agricultural and environmental and cultural resources management. She holds a degree in forest science and a doctorate in history and philosophy of science from the University of Melbourne. She has worked in both practical and research settings with Indigenous custodians and owners of land and sea in Arnhem Land and Tiwi Islands (Northern Territory) and other parts of Australia through her various roles as a PhD student, a postdoctoral fellow and a policy maker with the Commonwealth Government. Margaret currently works as a Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences and also she works as a social scientist in collaborative and transdisciplinary projects with communities facing challenges of water management, climate change and community-based land and sea management. She is interested in both understanding the impacts and opportunities of such challenges for communities, governments and industries and also in the processes of doing participatory and collaborative research itself.

Sunshine Coast Council - $2M Environmental Land Purchase at Verrierdale
 
02:21
More than 850 hectares of land has now been purchased by Sunshine Coast Council for conservation as part of its strategy to become the most sustainable region in Australia. Mayor Mark Jamieson said council used $2 million from the Environment Levy to buy 252 hectares of land adjoining an existing nature reserve at Verrierdale. "This is an important day for this region; this parcel of land is another important piece of the puzzle to help us preserve our natural environment on the Sunshine Coast," he said. "It also shows how we are getting the balance right as we strive to become the most sustainable region in Australia, economically, environmentally and socially. "This land is on top of the 600 hectares of land purchased by council for conservation across the Coast -- and shows how valuable the Environment Levy is to this region." The land connects Council's Doonan Wetlands Nature Refuge and the Doonan Creek Bushland Conservation Reserve to the Noosa National Park. It's home to endangered plants and animals such as the Hairy Hazelwood tree and the wallum froglet. Environment portfolio Councillor Tony Wellington said historically the types of rainforest on this site have been poorly conserved on the Coast. "This locale represents one of the most important wetland areas left on the Sunshine Coast," Cr Wellington said. "This recent purchase, together with the Doonan Creek Bushland Conservation Reserve and the nearby Doonan Wetland Conservation Area, will total 380 hectares of important habitat secured. "It helps protect the nationally recognised Noosa-Maroochy Wallum corridor and will support a range of rare and threatened plants and animals." Division 9 Councillor Stephen Robinson said he was pleased to see the site protected for the future. "This is so important for locals, and the region as a whole -- I'm really pleased one of the most significant areas in my division is being looked after for future generations," Cr Robinson said. "The next step is to develop a long-term plan for the site that will consider management requirements and potential educational opportunities."

Melanie Hamel - Protecting the unknown: what data for local coral reef conservation planning?
 
50:20
Seminar title: Protecting the unknown: what data for local coral reef conservation planning? Seminar type: PhD exit seminar Presented by: Mélanie A. Hamel Date: Monday 15th of June 2015 Abstract: Systematic conservation planning helps to identify candidate protected areas to represent biodiversity while minimizing negative impacts to resource-dependent human communities. One of the foundations for the success of protected areas designed using such approach is relevant, quality spatial datasets: on biodiversity and on the expected socioeconomic costs incurred when implementing protected areas. However, collecting comprehensive data is challenging and expensive. In coral-reef regions, conservation planning is still at its infancy, leading planners to mimic approaches used in other realms, spatial scales, and socio-political contexts, often based on a number of untested and unstated assumptions. For instance, to minimize the difficulty and cost of data collection, habitats are typically used as proxies for biodiversity, and forgone resource extraction or economic opportunities are used as proxies for socioeconomic costs of reserves to people. The main goal of my thesis was to verify the validity of using these proxies and related objectives for local coral reef conservation planning. I focused on local planning because governance systems tend to be devolved in these regions. First, I quantified the well-known trade-offs between global conservation objectives based on habitat representation, and local socioeconomic objectives. I used the three small Pacific islands of the Territory of Wallis and Futuna as a case study. My results highlighted the critical role of data and of the socioeconomic and geomorphologic context in achieving objectives, and also in the extent of trade-offs between conservation and livelihoods. To investigate the relevance of commonly used proxies to small-scale coral reef planning, I used the Madang Lagoon (Papua New Guinea) as a case study. I first questioned the adequacy of common proxies for socioeconomic cost. I found that information on fishing pressure and catch typically used to estimate opportunity costs did not necessarily reflect the importance of fishing areas for fishers. Since people derive diverse benefits from their coral reef environment, including fishing, I also developed a method to collect information about the perceived importance of places for these benefits. I showed how incorporating this information into planning can reduce direct negative impacts of conservation actions on the broader community, not just fishers. Then I designed reserves using several combinations of biodiversity and socioeconomic proxies (respectively habitat maps of various thematic resolutions, and proxies for fishing pressure and catch). I found that the effectiveness of these reserves at representing species while minimizing socioeconomic costs to the broader community varied strongly with the types of proxies and the taxa of interest. Importantly, more expensive datasets did not necessarily help design the best reserves. My thesis highlights the risk of using inadequate data to identify candidate protected areas: it can lead to a false sense of achievement of both conservation and socioeconomic objectives, ineffectively protecting biodiversity while incurring significant impacts on local communities. My work also contributes to conservation planning theory and practice, by providing new methods for incorporating more relevant spatial socioeconomic information into reserve design in coral reef regions. Bio: Mel grew up in a fishing town in Upper Normandy in France. She undertook her MSc (Ecology) at Paris 11 University and did her research project at Charles Darwin University, where she examined the diving behaviour of nesting Olive Ridley turtles in northern Australia. Fascinated by the extraordinary diversity of people, landscapes and species in the Pacific, she worked on various research projects in Northern Australia to model bird populations threatened by forestry activities, in New Zealand to monitor the health of estuaries, and New Caledonia to map coral reef habitats and discover the field of conservation planning. Mel’s experiences in the region and personal interests inspired her to pursue a multidisciplinary PhD, where she is questioning the relevance of various types of commonly used spatial information for local coral reef conservation planning. Mel’s work is mainly focused on the Madang Lagoon in Papua New Guinea.

Water: Lifeblood of Energy
 
26:47
The half-hour documentary "Water: The Lifeblood of Energy" describes the connection between water and energy and how cities and utilities across the western United States are using combinations of collaboration, conservation, and new technology to squeeze more use out of every precious drop of water. "All types of energy require water. With the greater need for energy, the demand for water will continue to increase," said Executive Producer and EERC Senior Research Manager Bethany Kurz. "How can we balance the need for water in energy with water for crops, households, and industries? How can we make do with the water we have? These are all critical questions addressed throughout the documentary." "Energy and water are inseparable issues," said EERC Director Gerald Groenewold. "Energy is totally dependent on water and vice versa. We have traditionally taken water for granted, and we cannot afford to do that any longer. It has to be considered in terms of energy production and distribution," he said. Groenewold added that there will be ever-increasing conflicts between the energy industry, municipalities, and agriculture industry over the same water sources. "An intelligent, objective approach leading to water use strategies needs to be developed to provide long-term sustainability for each of these associated stakeholders," he said. "Water: The Lifeblood of Energy" is a production of Prairie Public Broadcasting, in collaboration with the EERC's Northern Great Plains Water Consortium® (NGPWC). The NGPWC is a partnership between the EERC, the U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), and key stakeholders representing power generation utilities, oil and gas companies, industry, municipalities, and other entities interested in addressing critical water issues in the north-central United States. Funding for the documentary is provided by NETL, NGPWC partners, and the members of Prairie Public.

The Role of Phosphorus Management - Dr. Andrew Sharpley - January 30, 2015
 
36:13
Recent high profile harmful algal bloom outbreaks have centered increased attention on agriculture’s role in contributing phosphorus (P) to impaired surface waters and the effectiveness of current and future conservation strategies designed to mitigate such losses. Research on the sources and pathways of P loss predates most of us, yet we still deal with unintended consequences of some conservation measures. To a large extent, these concerns are fueled by a public debate of the wise use of conservation funding, an underlying desire for “quick fixes,” and an underestimation of the legacies of prior P and nitrogen (N) management. These problems are not unique to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed nor are our options for future P management. As a result, lessons can be learned and regional and national research, demonstration, and extension efforts can foster and guide a road map for successful P conservation.

Monarch Conservation Science Partnership
 
01:18:23
Presented by Dr. Karen Oberhauser, University of Minnesota Monarch Lab; Ryan Drum, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and Wayne Thogmartin, United States Geological Survey. May 25, 2016. Monarch conservation will require the involvement of the governments, non-government organizations, and citizens of all three North American countries. It will also require that limited resources are spent in ways that are most likely to help monarchs. Monarch biologists, habitat conservation practitioners, and landscape scientists have been meeting for over two years to create a blueprint for ensuring that monarch conservation strategies are based on our best available science. This group has worked to create a target for monarch population numbers that will minimize risks of extinction, develop regional priorities for habitat protection and restoration, and identify the most important risks to monarch populations. In this webinar, we'll summarize the work of the Monarch Conservation Science Partnership, ending with concrete suggestions for local, regional, and continental action. Karen Oberhauser is a Professor in the Dept. of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology at the University of Minnesota, where she and her students conduct research on several aspects of monarch butterfly ecology. In 1996, she and graduate student Michelle Prysby started the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, which engages hundreds of volunteers throughout North America. In 2013, Karen received a White House Champion of Change award for her work with Citizen Science. Ryan Drum is a Landscape Ecologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. His work is focused on linking biological planning, conservation design, on-the-ground delivery, and monitoring to guide landscape-scale adaptive management in the Midwest-Great Lakes Region and beyond. Ryan serves as the USFWS co-lead for the Monarch Conservation Science Partnership and is also the Service lead for Trinational Monarch Conservation Science Partnership. Wayne Thogmartin is a research ecologist with the United States Geological Survey at the Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His research is generally focused on the statistical and mathematical ecology of rare and declining species. Current work involves developing continental-scale energetic-based models of migratory waterfowl, half-life and extinction risk calculations as a means of prioritizing species for conservation action, and calculating the value of a subpopulation to system dynamics to better understand the flow of ecosystem services as a function of migration. He is co-lead of the USGS Monarch Conservation Science Partnership.

Resilience Potential of Coral Reefs in the Mariana Islands
 
43:50
http://gallery.usgs.gov/videos/912 This webinar was conducted as part of the "Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series" held in partnership between the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Summary: Reducing coral reef vulnerability to climate change requires that managers understand and support the natural resilience of coral reefs. To assist these managers, a team of researchers, supported by the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center (PI CSC) undertook a project to: 1) assess ecological resilience in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), which is in the west Pacific near Guam, and 2) collaboratively develop a decision-support framework with local management partners for resilience-based management. The team used an approach that included surveys of 78 sites along reefs surrounding the most populated islands in CNMI (Saipan, Tinian/Aguijan, and Rota), data from environmental monitoring satellites and computer models, an analysis of ‘indicators’ of the processes that underlie reef resilience (e.g., recruitment of new corals), and an assessment of proxies of anthropogenic stress (land-based sources of pollution and accessibility due to wave exposure). The project resulted in a set of scores for relative resilience potential and allowed the team to rank the survey sites within and among the islands from high to low resilience and develop a set of custom criteria for a decision-support framework that can identify sites that warrant management attention.

Jorge Alvarez Romero - A practical approach to design a network of marine reserves in the [...]
 
45:43
Seminar title: A practical approach to design a network of marine reserves in the Midriff Islands (Gulf of California) considering connectivity and climate change Seminar type: CoralCoE seminar series Presented by: Jorge Alvarez Romero Date: Thursday, 31st of July 2014 Abstract: Overfishing and climate change threaten marine biodiversity and fisheries worldwide. Addressing these problems is particularly critical in areas of high species richness and endemicity, such as the Midriff Islands, Gulf of California, where livelihoods of coastal communities are negatively affected by depletion of fish stocks and potential loss of valuable species due to climate change. Our study aimed to develop a practical approach to design networks of marine reserves that consider ecological connectivity and the effects of climate change. We used up-to-date data/models on marine species distribution and ecological connectivity, as well as current systematic conservation planning methods to design and test alternative reserve networks that achieve three objectives: represent biodiversity (species and habitats) associated with rocky reefs; minimise costs to fishers and/or maximise benefits to commercial fisheries; and account for ecological connectivity and predicted ecological changes wrought by climate change. To achieve our objectives, we developed and tested alternative methods to incorporate connectivity based on readily-available data and tools. To provide practical guidance to real-world marine planning exercises, we discuss the benefits and limitations of our approach, such as the assumptions underpinning our treatment of connectivity and climate change in the spatial prioritisation and the adequacy of our outputs to guide on-ground implementation of actions. Biography: Jorge was born and grew up in Mexico City, where he studied Biology at the National University of Mexico. He completed his PhD in the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, where he is now a postdoctoral research fellow. Jorge’s broad research interest regards planning for the sustainable use of natural resources to achieve biodiversity conservation and development objectives. In particular, he is interested in advancing systematic conservation planning theory and practice through the integration of terrestrial and marine conservation planning initiatives. Other areas of interest and previous work experience include prioritising invasive species management, conservation planning for endangered species, wildlife trade, and catchment and river plume modelling. He is currently working on three applied research projects: prioritizing management actions to achieve multiple objectives in northern Australia; exploring the use of social network analysis to inform regional conservation planning, and collaborating with researchers, agencies and local NGOs to design a network of marine reserves in the Gulf of California, Mexico.
Natalie Ban - The changing nature of marine protected areas
 
05:46
Seminar title: The changing nature of marine protected areas Presented by: Natalie Ban Seminar type: Public forum Presentation given at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies 2010 public forum: Coral Reefs in a Changing Environment. Abstract: Marine protected areas have been getting much attention recently in Australia. Why do we need them? This presentation provides a global overview of the need for marine protected areas, how they work, and their changing nature. Bio: Natalie Ban is an ARC Postdoctoral Fellow in Program 6 (Conservation Planning for a Sustainable Future) at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University. Natalie's broad research interests include incorporating dynamics into conservation planning, marine protected area design that includes ecological and socioeconomic objectives, and human uses and impacts on the marine environment (including ecosystem services). Her postdoctoral research will comprehensively assess the role of an important and hitherto largely ignored set of biodiversity processes, patch dynamics, in conservation planning. She recently (November 2008) completed her PhD at the University of British Columbia, Canada.
Sustainable Forest Management in Armenia / 2015
 
21:33
Only 11.1 % (2011) of Armenia are covered by forests. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 Armenian forests have suffered excessive deforestation and unsustainable forest management practices. In 2009 the Government of the Republic of Armenia agreed with GIZ to develop a transforming approach for sustainable forest monitoring, management, and planning. This video focuses on the core element of this approach: the newly developed National Forest Management Information System (NFMIS). This system is based on information technology (IT system) and is being used as a tool for planning and monitoring forest management and conservation activities. The NFMIS links all forest enterprises of Armenia with forest authorities on the national level, provides accurate data, and facilitates processing and exchange of information. Its objective is to introduce sustainable forest management by enforcing new standards, technical methods, and administrational procedures in Armenia. The new system is characterized by a low-cost strategy, efficiency, and transparency. This video was produced within the framework of the GIZ regional programme on “Sustainable Management of Biodiversity, South Caucasus” implemented on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
