The Regional Dialogues are virtual meetings to bring science closer to policy and practice, and to outline innovative ideas on the sustainable development of the Andean mountains.

Dialogue approach:

The management of Andean mountain territories still faces great challenges to adequately balance conservation with production. Thousands of rural and urban livelihoods depend on the food grown on their land, but also on high altitude water, fertile soil, air exchange and even the contemplation of landscapes of exceptional beauty. The risks of natural disasters, accelerated land degradation and the effects of climate change make the task of protecting, restoring and producing in a balanced way, even more complicated.

Key contributions of this dialogue:

  • Make the word and the strategy of conservation comeback as a key strategy in maintaining ecosystems that are viable in the long term.
  • Show interesting experiences of territory and landscape management that combine different sectors and strategies, and that are replicable and scalable.
