Specialists from Andean countries meet to get to know Chile’s National Climate Change Strategy

  • 20.01.2017
  • Nearly 100 specialists from Latin America are meeting in Chile from 16th to 21st January in a joint mission to learn more about the National Strategy for Climate Change and Vegetation Resources and the concrete experiences that the southern country is facilitating with local actors in the regions of Aysén and Los Ríos.

    This visit has been organized by the National Forestry Corporation (CONAF) within the framework of the recent approval of the National Strategy for Climate Change and Vegetation Resources (ENCCRV) and hopes to be a space for the exchange of experiences to support similar processes in the other countries of the Andean region.

    The Andean Forests Program is participating in this mission, along with its strategic partners, the National Forestry and Wildlife Service of Peru (SERFOR) and the Ecuadorian Ministry of Environment, which are also developing and implementing strategies for climate change and forest management.

    It should be noted that the National Strategy for Climate Change and Vegetation Resources aims to reduce the social, environmental and economic vulnerability that climate change, desertification, land degradation and drought generates on vegetation resources and the communities’ dependent on them in order to increase the resilience of ecosystems and contribute to mitigating climate change in Chile.
