International Symposium on Ecological Restoration Practices and III National Meeting on Ecological Restoration of Argentina

Welcome to the 1st International Symposium on Ecological Restoration Practices, the 3rd National Meeting on Ecological Restoration of Argentina, and the 1st Workshop on Ecological Restoration in the South American Arid Diagonal, hosted by the Ecological Restoration Network of Argentina (REA Network). The event will take place in person from 22—24 November 2023, at the “El Cisne” Convention Center in Neuquén, Argentina. It will feature keynote presentations, symposia, and specialized workshops, as well as poster exhibitions.

GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance - Frontiers of Change

The Earth is on the brink of catastrophe. We are on track for 3°C of global warming by 2100 – and from record temperatures to raging wildfires, many of us are already dealing with the dangerous realities of climate change on a daily basis.

Join us at one of the most important climate summits in history

It’s been 25 years since the first UN climate change conference, and this year’s COP26 comes at a more pressing time than ever.

Will we make it count?

The research is there. The ideas are there. The ways to act are there.

From 5–7 November, this all converges at GLF Climate. Take part in panels and conversations to learn what needs to be done and how. The three-day event will focus on the areas most crucial to bringing climate change under control: forests, food and finance.

Join policymakers, Indigenous leaders, writers, royalty, youth activists, scientists and many more in strategizing our way to a better future.

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?

The COVID-19 crisis has caused the UN CBD to postpone the negotiations for its post-2020 global biodiversity framework. Yet, now is the time that the global community must step up and set a pathway for restoring the earth. Aligning with CBD’s envisioned pathways to transformative change and the 2020-2030 UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) advocates for a reorientation of our economic system, to reconcile the multiple interests, values and forms of resource use.

What will you do at GLF Amazon?

GLF Amazon will build on lessons learned from the creation and management of protected areas, Indigenous reserves and community forests. The territories within the Amazon require an integrated, transboundary and rights-based approach to catalyzing restoration and conservation efforts. Space must be created for Indigenous groups, local communities and institutions to connect to global processes and technologies, in order to combine new innovations and old practices, balance development and conservation, and embed inclusive, equitable and sustainable bioeconomies within Amazonian landscapes.

#GLFAmazonia

The Amazon Biome is poised on the brink of an irreversible tipping point.

The biome is one of the most culturally and biologically diverse regions on Earth: it’s home to more than 30 million people, around 410 ethnic groups, and over a tenth of the planet’s known biodiversity, including many endemic and endangered species.

But 40% of the Amazon Biome is close to losing its function as water-generating rainforest – a catastrophe for human well-being and planetary health. We can change this trajectory if we work together and act now.

Uniting to save the world’s mightiest tropical forest

Join us online on September 21-23 for GLF Amazonia: the largest-ever global conference on the Amazon Biome.

The event will bring together new and traditional knowledge and perspectives from key actors across the biome, to explore how we can preserve and restore the biological and cultural diversity of the world’s mightiest humid tropical forest.

We will leverage the latest evidence, innovation and business cases; convene partnerships; generate public support; and help build propositions to balance competing land-use demands between forestry, agriculture and restoration.

The conference will also include a three-day film festival and a multimedia cultural gallery, which will feature documentaries, art, photos, music and stories from across the region – and the people who create them.   

An open invitation

With coverage in English, Portuguese and Spanish, GLF Amazonia is open to attendees from all walks of life, including scientists, policymakers, activists, youth, investors, restoration practitioners, community and Indigenous groups, civil society organizations, media and more.

GLF Amazonia is free for everyone in Latin America and the Caribbean, and only 10-15 Euros for those living outside the region. Sign up to help secure a sustainable future for the Amazon Biome! 

What's on the agenda?

01
Connect with different biocultural identities in the Amazon Biome to develop a new, inclusive and sustainable development paradigm.
02
Share local solutions to conserve and restore the biocultural diversity of the Amazon Biome. Explore how integrated landscape approaches can safeguard human-nature relations.
03
Learn from Indigenous Peoples, Local Communities and Afro-descendants to create new synergies between traditional knowledge, innovative practices and cutting-edge science.
04

Understand the business case for restoration, and establish recommendations for scaling nature-based value chains.

05

Encourage new commitments to upscale cross-sectoral land-use planning in the Amazonian Biome, and strengthen governance mechanisms that protect the rights of local actors.

06
Act towards an equitable, resilient and circular bioeconomy that is powered by nature and grounded in the rights of local communities. Explore the incentives, disincentives and policy instruments needed to bring nature-based businesses and value chains to scale.
07
Support existing grassroots initiatives, campaigns and movements in the Amazon Biome, and create new alliances to enhance human and ecological health.

Research and policy around community forest concessions in Peten: Progress, lessons and pending challenges

In 1990, the Guatemalan State established the Maya Biosphere Reserve (MBR), the largest protected area in the country. About forty percent of the MBR was established as a Multiple Use Zone (MUZ) to promote sustainable activities.  In this area, the Guatemalan government legalized a formal concession system granting community-based organizations 25-year concession contracts.  To date, this system of community concessions represents about 10 per cent of the country’s total forest cover, including national parks

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), in collaboration with Bioversity International and the Asociation of forestry communities of Peten (ACOFOP) will convene a two days event to discuss the experience of community forestry in Peten, promote policy dialogue between researchers and local stakeholders and discuss evidence from research and mechanisms that inform policy discussions.

Over 30 researchers, practitioners and policy makers will share latest research and discuss key lessons learned and identify research gaps and action points, with a view to informing discussions about concession renewal in Peten.
