Introduction

svg divider

The 2nd Asia Parks Congress is a gathering of Asia's protected areas practitioners and other interested stakeholders. The Congress will bring together leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia from Asia and around the world. The conference's theme will be "Parks for Nature and People," emphasizing the relationship between nature and society. This follows on the success of the first Asia Parks Congress held in Sendai, Japan in 2013. The 2nd Asia Parks Congress aims to bring together protected area practitioners and the broader community to share experiences, learn from one another, and respond to the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century. The Congress will also address the growing pressures on the region's protected areas.

The Congress will include plenary sessions, working group discussions, side events, and an exciting range of field trips. Feel free to join us! Additional information can be obtained by writing to ird@sabahparks.org.my

YAB DATUK SERI PANGLIMA HAJI HAJIJI HAJI NOOR

CHIEF MINISTER OF SABAH

"Greetings and a very warm welcome to all participants to the 2nd Asia Parks Congress.

Malaysia, particularly Sabah is proud and honoured to host this significant Congress in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah from May 24 to 29,2022 at the Sabah lnternational Convention Centre.

The 2nd Asia Parks Congress will be a landmark event as it will be the first regional conservation event following the new Global Biodiversity Framework's adoption. lt will be a great opportunity to discuss post-2020 biodiversity targets and how Asia can help achieve them. It will also contribute to developing the region's protected and conserved areas over the next ten years.

The theme "Parks fon Nature and People" is timely as it will highlight the numerous links between nature and societies. Building on the success of the first Asia Parks Congress in Sendai, Japan in 2013, the second Asia Parks Congress will be a remarkable opportunity to demonstrate the ASIA region's commitment to combating the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change.

On behalf of the State Government of Sabah, I wish to express my gratitude to the IUCN lnternational Steering Committee on the 2nd Asia Parks Congress and to the National Government of Malaysia for all the support rendered to us to ensure the success of this Congress." - YAB Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor
