Organizations working on mountain landscapes meet in the framework of public consultation on the Peruvian Government proposal about the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) on Climate Change

“The practices on forests management that could be considered as measures to mitigate climate change are mainly focused on Amazonian regions. However, there is lack of information about the contribution of Andean forests to mitigation strategies and adaptation”, mentioned CONDESAN Executive Director, Miguel Saravia last Thursday, June 25 when representatives of various organizations of civil society that work on Andean forests landscapes met to exchange and jointly define their contributions to the proposal of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) on Climate Change.
