Hosted by:

Catherine Bearder MEP

Forests and forest landscapes, particularly in tropical areas, are important
in regulating global carbon budgets and moderating climate change but they
are still being degraded and destroyed at a significant rate. These same
forests provide many other essential non-carbon benefits such as
biodiversity, provision of food/energy/materials, medicines, disease
mitigation, water quality and flood control.

By 2030 restoration and sustainable management of forest landscapes could
also make better use of biodiversity, to maintain or increase their capacity
to absorb and store carbon despite new climate extremes, while responding to
the needs of local and global society. 

The EC funded project on the “Role of Biodiversity in Climate Change
Mitigation” (ROBIN) has produced new insights and evidence concerning the
carbon and non-carbon benefits provided by tropical forest landscapes in
Latin America.

This conference aims, through a science-policy-society dialogue, to help
develop a coherent set of actions across sectors and levels of government to
address climate change mitigation and adaptation, biodiversity loss and the
maintenance of sustainable tropical forest landscapes.
