The 1st Asia Parks Congress was held in Sendai, Japan in November 2013, as the first conference that brings together protected area practitioners in Asia. The outcomes of the congress were delivered to the 6th World Parks Congress held in Sydney, Australia in November 2014.

First Asia Parks Congress

The Asia Parks Congress theme is "Parks Connect", illustrating the flexible yet unifying concept of the connections at many different levels which link nature with people, people with people, and protected areas with pressing world challenges, including disaster risk reduction, climate change, biodiversity loss, and sustainable development and livelihoods.

World Parks Congress

The World Parks Congress is international congress about protected area such as national parks, organized every decade by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and WCPA (World Commission on Protected Area) after 1962.
