Since its inception in the late 1990s, the MAP initiative – a trinational effort to accelerate sustainable forest and land use in the Peruvian, Brazilian and Bolivian Amazon – has been building an evidence base for the effectiveness of transboundary cooperation in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With a special focus on SDGs 13 (Climate Action) and 4 (Quality Education), this session will present key insights and learnings from across the initiative’s 22-year history.
