ILCN Webinar: How OECMs in China, Japan, and Korea can contribute to achieving 30×30

Other Effective Area-Based Conservation Measures (OECMs) emerged in response to the need to recognize diverse approaches to achieving conservation outcomes. This concept was first introduced in the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) in 2010 and is further emphasized in Target 3 of the new 2030 GBF. OECMs refer to land stewardship and management strategies beyond protected areas that directly or indirectly safeguard biodiversity as well as the cultural, spiritual, and socio-economic values of local communities. This webinar will feature an overview of progress on OECMs in China, Japan and the Republic of Korea. Speakers will share criteria for designating OECMs and lessons around emerging good practices.
