Mountains: Restoring the Summit

Recent studies show that nature-based approaches to carbon capture such as restoration can provide more than a third of the emissions reductions needed to keep global temperature rise below 1.5°C. Showcasing a large-scale community-driven forest restoration initiative in the

Andes, involved parties representing communities, intermediaries, and financiers will share what factors determine successful implementation and what roadblocks have to be overcome. Attendees will leave the panel discussion with a better understanding of what factors determine the success of landscape-wide restorations in remote mountain areas, how long-term engagement of both the implementing and the financing partners can be ensured and much more.
