How can African Swine Fever be detected, prevented, and controlled in endemic and endangered wild pig populations, vital to ecosystems and rural communities?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals
  • Develop a theory of change to identify priority actions for improved ASF monitoring, prevention, and control (including actions currently being implemented or not).
  • Increase the amount of ASF case data in target countries by demonstrating low-cost IT-based surveillance systems (media monitoring and a community-based One Health toolkit), using a wide variety of readily available, and often overlooked, data.
  • Compile all guidelines, tools, and plans that are used in focal countries for a regional ASF mitigation plan, evaluating their utility and replicability across Asia.
  • Inform government partners in each focal country of their role in responding to ASF, including how to use recommended guidelines and tools, as part of a One Health approach that informs the development a national science-based ASF mitigation management plan which also considers the recommendation of Red List re-assessment of at least one Asian endemic wild pig species.

SNAPP TEAM:The Social Implications of 30×30
Support SNAPP
Teams Like This
What are the implications for resident people of plans to greatly increase global protected and conserved area coverage, and how might these be addressed to maximize positive outcomes for nature and society?
Team Status: ONGOING
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals
  1. New analysis of the potential social impacts of 30×30 at global level, under various scenarios for implementation. This will include analysis of affected populations disaggregated as far as possible by wealth, ethnicity, voice in decision making and other important social variables.
  2. A more detailed analysis of one case study country (likely to be in Central Africa).
  3. Feasible proposals for how 30×30 could be implemented at the country level in a way that maximises social benefits while minimising social harms, co-developed with implementation partners.
  4. Improved dialogue and a strong foundation for future inter-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research collaboration between people with different perspectives on area-based conservation.
Key Products
Social considerations are crucial to success in implementing the 30×30 global conservation target

This correspondence outlines the critical need for the implementation of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity’s Target 3 of the Global Biodiversity Framework (protecting 30% of the earth by 2030) to focus on national and sub-national analyses, research questions designed by place-based coalitions, comparative analyses of multiple countries, better social indicators (relating to rights, participation, justice, or financing) and research and support for political mobilization.

Can we effectively strengthen wildlife health surveillance globally through a collaborative and evidence-based consortium of local, national, and international organizations?
Team Status: ONGOING
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals

1a. Prioritize surveillance to focus on high-risk interfaces by synthesizing data on health impacts on wildlife, existing wildlife health surveillance systems, missing cases of wildlife health events and detection bias, and socio-ecological interfaces and high spillover risk practices;

1b. Address sustainability through analyses of data and creation of tools to estimate cost effectiveness and benefits of surveillance, drawing from existing wildlife or livestock surveillance systems;

2a. Communicate a co-developed theory of change that connects multilateral agreements (e.g., Sustainable Development Goals) and international frameworks to the practical implementation of wildlife surveillance systems;

2b. Formalize the consortium through the drafting of a collaboration agreement with endorsements from respective member institutions describing how we work together in the long term and identify capabilities, synergies, and gaps among stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable wildlife health surveillance globally.

New Standard in China Launched for Financial Institutions on Biodiversity Risk Management

This press release announces the launch of a Standard for Financial Institutions on Biodiversity Risks Management, a key initial input for the BRI Biodiversity Toolkit working group. The Standard provides specifics 1) to screen potential biodiversity risks along the life cycle of any project before a decision on loans or investment, and 2) to measure actions which should be supervised by financial institutions to avoid or mitigate these risks.

A Gateway to Proven, Practical, Guidance and Use Cases

Drawing on lessons learned from decades of on-the-ground experience and informed by evolving theories of collective action and common pool resource management, the group identified enabling factors for effective community-led natural resource governance and compiled guidance materials and created tools to help communities and their support partners establish those enabling conditions that are lacking.

Consensus Statement: The Meaning of Community and of Governance

This consensus statement defines effective and equitable community-level natural resource governance and identifies factors that help or hinder this approach in practices.
