Dr Nathalie Richards - From the Mau Forest to Lake Victoria: The Journey of the Mara River in East Africa

The Mara River starts its journey in the Mau forest in Kenya, flowing through diverse waterscapes and famous savannahs into Tanzania, where it reaches the Mara wetland system before spilling into Lake Victoria. The landscapes surrounding the Mara River are shaped by the seasonality of its flows. Its exceptional flora and fauna follow the rhythm of water availability, and human inhabitants have adapted to and influenced the ecosystem services provided by the local environment. For millennia and more intensively in the past centuries, different peoples have been inspired by the river ecosystem ...

Dr Erin O'Donnell - Reshaping the human relationship with water: what happens when a river becomes a person?

Globally, the status of rivers in law is changing rapidly, as rivers themselves are beginning to receive legal rights. This growing transnational movement accelerated in 2017 with the recognition of rivers in Aotearoa New Zealand, Colombia and India as legal persons. In Aotearoa New Zealand, this recognition was a way to incorporate the Māori cosmology into settler state law. In Colombia and India, the new status of the river was the result of deep judicial concern for both the health of the river and the people who live along and depend upon it. For the Río Atrato in Colombia, becoming ...

Dr Avril Horne - Participatory environmental flows assessments

Several of the key challenges to implementing environmental flows are related to the social and political context of environmental flows projects. These include community acceptance and buy in, political will and legislation, as well as effective stakeholder engagement.  Despite this, in many countries there remains a delineation between environmental and social outcomes, and the process to determine environmental flows requirements remains a predominantly technocratic approach placing a large emphasis on scientific understandings of rivers.  Using the Goulburn River, Victoria, Australia as a case study, this presentation will discuss the ...

Dave Pritchard - Action for culture and the water environment through the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

The intergovernmental Ramsar Convention on Wetlands celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.  Its global treaty provisions and conservation policy frameworks have always been based on the best available ecological and hydrological science.  Over the years, however, there has been a growing appreciation that truly sustainable strategies depend just as much on understanding societal factors, Indigenous knowledge, community traditions and contemporary advances in transdisciplinary research.  A body of guidance materials, knowledge exchange initiatives and cooperation activities on the subject of culture and wetlands within the framework of the Convention has consequently taken ...

Nupur Prothi Khanna - Cultural landscapes of Water systems in Asia

In this ‘SDG Decade of Action” we are aiming to facilitate a nature-culture orientation related to water wisdom with a focus on our young citizens. Traditional knowledge related to water has endured over time to bridge the void between the past and the present, offering a means to facilitate unique solutions to urban problems of flooding and drought. Our response to natural water systems within urban extents communicate our diminishing sensibility and traditional ethos of our natural and cultural heritage. How then can we march on in making a difference on ground ...

Dr Tim Badman - Natureculture approaches in the World Heritage Convention, and beyond.

This paper will provide a review of work being undertaken to bring together the consideration of nature and culture in policies, programmes and practices of the World Heritage Convention, and a linked series of renewed collaborations and new relationships between the nature and culture sectors.  These include the integrated nature-culture programmes Connecting Practice, and World Heritage Leadership, and the Culture Nature Journey promoted through the major Congresses of IUCN and General Assemblies of ICOMOS.  The paper will review some of the emerging opportunities to scale up the attention to connecting ...

Dr Wendy Monk & Prof. André St-Hilaire - Adapting social-cultural-environmental flows for cold regions.

In northern regions, many rivers remain ice-covered for a period of three to six months and have two distinct low flow periods: mid-winter and mid to late summer. Societal water demands are highly seasonal, for example with peaks in demand being associated with summer agricultural activities in many regions, and access and navigation of systems with complex seasonal wetting/drying of deltaic environments. We have divided our talk into two parts to explore environmental flows in cold regions; the first half explores applications ...

La détection de la fraude financière, la lutte contre le blanchiment d’argent et le financement du terrorisme : Une approche pluridisciplinaire : data science, économie et droit

FinCEN Files, Panama Papers, Danske Bank…, plusieurs scandales financiers mettent en lumière les failles des mécanismes actuels de lutte contre le blanchiment d’argent et le financement du terrorisme (LBA-FT). Dans un contexte géo-politique particulièrement sensible, les dispositifs ont considérablement évolué ces dernières années : les pouvoirs des autorités de contrôle ont été largement développés et le cadre normatif à l’échelle internationale, européenne et nationale est devenu de plus en plus  contraignant pour les acteurs privés (professionnels du droit et du chiffre, de la banque, ...
