1 Key Biodiversity Areas: review and lessons learned workshop Five years of Key Biodiversity Areas Churchill Hotel, Washington DC 25 July 2006

2 The importance of local ownership of global standards for conservation outcomes in CI

3  Local ownership because the closer to the ground planning occurs, the better the link to implementation

4 The importance of local ownership of global standards for conservation outcomes in CI  Local ownership because the closer to the ground planning occurs, the better the link to implementation  Global standards because CI is a global organization, accountable to global donors, and so must be able to compare between regions and over time

5 The importance of local ownership of global standards for conservation outcomes in CI  Local ownership because the closer to the ground planning occurs, the better the link to implementation  Global standards because CI is a global organization, accountable to global donors, and so must be able to compare between regions and over time  Targets for conservation outcomes to justify strategy and provide baseline for monitoring

7 Key Biodiversity Areas are…

8  Sites of global significance for biodiversity conservation

9 Key Biodiversity Areas are…  Sites of global significance for biodiversity conservation  Targets for ‘Areas Protected’ biodiversity conservation outcomes for CI

10 Key Biodiversity Areas are…  Sites of global significance for biodiversity conservation  Targets for ‘Areas Protected’ biodiversity conservation outcomes for CI  Identified by CI CBCs, regional programs, and partners, using globally standard criteria and thresholds

11 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:

12 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  “site” ( not grid cells)

13 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  “site” ( not grid cells)  “occurrence” ( not modeled predictions)

14 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  “site” ( not grid cells)  “occurrence” ( not modeled predictions)  “data” ( not expert opinion)

15 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  “site” ( not grid cells)  “occurrence” ( not modeled predictions)  “data” ( not expert opinion)  “species” ( not environmental surrogates)

16 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  “site” ( not grid cells)  “occurrence” ( not modeled predictions)  “data” ( not expert opinion)  “species” ( not environmental surrogates)  “conservation significance” ( not species richness)

17 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:

18 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  Vulnerability (globally threatened species)

19 Key Biodiversity Areas are… Identified following standard criteria using site occurrence data for species of conservation significance:  Vulnerability (globally threatened species)  Irreplaceability (>X% of global population of a species) - start with restricted-range species - congregations - …

20 Key Biodiversity Areas are not …

21  Necessarily protected areas, although many are, and many more should be

22 Key Biodiversity Areas are not …  Necessarily protected areas, although many are, and many more should be  The “only” scale at which biodiversity conservation is urgent – they must often be complemented by targeting species specific (e.g., invasive species control) and sea/landscape scale (e.g., biodiversity conservation corridors) outcomes

23 (Ancient) history of KBAs… Early ‘80s BirdLife International (then ICBP) developed “Important Bird Areas” (IBAs)

24 (Ancient) history of KBAs… Early ‘80s BirdLife International (then ICBP) developed “Important Bird Areas” (IBAs) Mid ‘90s Plantlife International developed “Important Plant Areas” (IPAs)

25 (Ancient) history of KBAs… Early ‘80s BirdLife International (then ICBP) developed “Important Bird Areas” (IBAs) Mid ‘90s Plantlife International developed “Important Plant Areas” (IPAs) 2000 on Important Freshwater /Mammal/Herp /Butterfly /Dragonfly Areas…

26 (Ancient) history of KBAs (cont)…  …so, importance of unifying these multiple taxon- specific initiatives to avoid duplication of effort and confusion

27 (Ancient) history of KBAs (cont)…  …so, importance of unifying these multiple taxon- specific initiatives to avoid duplication of effort and confusion  IBAs therefore become the bird subset of KBAs, IPAs the plant subset of KBAs, etc
