    Globally, countries are looking for ways to reverse environmental degradation, as well as the loss of biodiversity and natural capital through the restoration of landscapes. Following the impetus of international order, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru have also defined quantitative restoration goals and formulated programs with the objective of achieving goals of recovery of their forest ecosystems.

    Although these tropical Andean countries share the Hispanic culture, the same language and the longest mountain range in the world, they  also present great differences in their approaches towards forest restoration. This event seeks to inform about the state of the restoration plans of the tropical Andean countries in the context of the global agenda, based on a recent study.

    The presentation begins with a brief overview of the state of the art in of forest landscape restoration practices and then presents an eco-regional vision of the state of progress in the restoration of tropical Andean forests to  meet international commitments, and to reverse, even partially, the degradation of their natural ecosystems.

    Limited space available. The venue´s address will be send upon confirmation of participation.
