Internationally...

 

2012 IUCN World Conservation Congress

(Jeju, South Korea)

 

This was amongst the largest ever gatherings of environmentalists, from grassroots NGOs to governments and the private sector. DJEnvironmental coordinated and led a multinational team of report writers to provide the official record of the seven-day Members’ Assembly and provided post-Congress publication services, including editing and typesetting (the latter in English, French and Spanish) of the Proceedings and Resolutions & Recommendations.

 

 

Also in 2011 and 2012, DJEnvironmental undertook major report-writing assignments for the Convention on Migratory Species (10th Conference of

Parties, Bergen, Norway, November 2011); African–Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (5th Meeting of Parties, La Rochelle, France, May 2012);

Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (11th Conference of Parties, Bucharest, Romania, July 2012).

 

 

Publications of UNEP’s Post-Conflict and Disaster Management Branch

 

Between 1999 and 2011 DJEnvironmental provided coordination, editorial, proofreading and/or typesetting services for a series of reports published by UNEP’s Geneva-based Post-Conflict and Disaster Management Branch, highlighting the sometimes hidden environmental problems that occur in the wake of natural disasters or armed conflict. These included:

  • Afghanistan – Post-Conflict Environmental Assessment (2003)
  • Depleted Uranium in Bosnia & Herzegovina – Post-Conflict Environmental

         Assessment (2001)

International Single Species Action Plan for Lesser White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus

 

DJEnvironmental was responsible for compiling the draft Action Plan for this globally threatened species, taking

into account the contributions received from diverse stakeholders with sometimes strongly differing views on

certain issues. The finalized Action Plan was adopted by the 4th Meeting of Parties to AEWA

(Antananarivo, Madagascar, 2009).

 

 

 

Evaluation of cooperation between ACE

(Alliance of Beverage Carton Manufacturers for the Environment) and WWF

 

This was a desk-based evaluation of a groundbreaking cooperative agreement between a private-sector

trade association concerned with environmental performance and responsibility and one of the world’s

largest conservation NGOs. DJEnvironmental designed and implemented an evaluation framework involving

an online questionnaire and telephone interviews with key stakeholders from each cooperating partner.

 

Other recent evaluations have been carried out for WWF European Policy Office and PAN Parks / WWF-

Netherlands.

 

 

 

AEWA International Review Process

– field mission to Syria

 

Tim Jones participated as one of three

experts in the first AEWA International

Review Process mission, conducted in

February 2010 (well before the current armed

conflict affecting the country). The mission

addressed the sensitive issue of illegal

hunting of Sociable Lapwing in Syria,

 identified as a key threat to this globally

threatened species. The IRP team met with

central and local government officials,

hunters, local people and other stakeholders

and submitted a detailed report and

recommendations to AEWA’s Standing

Committee.

 

 

 

Publications of IUCN – International Union

for the Conservation of Nature

 

Working to IUCN’s in-house style guide, DJEnvironmental has

produced a series of documents covering different conservation

themes, including:

 

Building River Dialogue and Governance – three 12-page

publications for IUCN's BRIDGE Project which aims at building

water governance capacities through learning, demonstration,

leadership, and consensus-building, in particular in transboundary

river basins.

 

An Ecosystem Approach to Management of Seamounts in the

Southern Indian Ocean – published by IUCN’s Global Marine and

Polar Programme in 2013, this series of three volumes, running to

a total of 160 pages, was proofread, designed and typeset by

DJEnvironmental.

 

Water and Nature Initiative (WANI) Case Studies – working with

IUCN’s Global Water Programme in 2011 and 2012,

DJEnvironmental designed and typeset this series of six illustrated

reports on environmental flow assessments in river basins in

Latin America, Africa and Asia.

 

 

 

Publications of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

 

The Ramsar Convention Manual, now in its 6th edition, was originally compiled, edited,

designed and typeset by Tim Davis in 1994. In 2010, DJEnvironmental compiled, edited,

designed and typeset a series of ten factsheets for the Ramsar Convention Secretariat on

the theme of ‘Wetland Ecosystem Services’. The work included an introductory factsheet on

wetland ecosystem services and another on data sources.

The Birds of Lundy

 

Researched, written, designed, typeset and published by Tim Davis and Tim Jones,

The Birds of Lundy (2007) describes the more than 300 species to have been recorded

on the island of Lundy, situated off the south-west coast of England across the entrance

to the Bristol Channel. To date the book has raised more than £16,000 in support of

conservation research into the island's bird life, in particular its population of

Manx Shearwaters. The authors are currently the island's bird recorders and produce

the yearly bird report published in the Annual Report of the Lundy Field Society.

self-published second supplement to his

Birds In Counties, an ornithological

bibliography for the counties of England,

Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man,

the Channel Islands and, for the first

time, Ireland.
