The Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry presents its engagement at the exhibition organized as part of the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 in Sydney from 12 to 19 November 2014. The Ministry’s booth supported by FORCLIME presents information about national parks and other conservation areas in Indonesia. More than 5,000 delegates from over 160 countries participate in the Congress. Delegates include Heads of State, park rangers, business executives, NGOs and indigenous leaders.
The Congress is organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Government of Australia under the theme ‘Parks, People, Planet: Inspiring solutions’. The IUCN World Parks Congress is the only global forum dedicated to protected areas – national parks, nature reserves and community conserved areas, established to conserve nature and the benefits it provides.
In addition to participating in the exhibition, the Ministry’s delegation also presented their experiences on shared governance in national park management to the visitors of the Congress.
