From 7th to 10th March 7, the first coordination meeting of the technical team that was in charge of initiating the process of restoration and rehabilitation of landscapes in Apurímac, Peru, was held.
The technical team consisted of Héctor Cisneros, Program Coordinator of FAO Peru; Leoncio Ugarte Guerra, Director of Studies and Research of SERFOR; Francisco Medina, Regional Manager of Natural Resources of GORE Apurímac and Roberto Kometter, Advisor for Forest Practices Validation of the Andes Forest Program.
This first meeting had as objective to determine the areas with potentiality for the implementation of strategies on restoration. In this sense, field visits were made to the lagoon of Pacucha and to the Rontoccocha and Kiuñalla communities.
Soon more information.
The restoration and rehabilitation of forests are difficult tasks and in the long term require careful planning, implementation and monitoring. While closely related, a conceptual distinction can be made between them. The goal of forest restoration is to restore a degraded forest to its original state, that is, to restore the structure, productivity, and diversity of forest species that were originally present in one place. The objective of forest rehabilitation is to restore the capacity of degraded forest lands to supply forest products and services.
