About the event
Habitat loss and fragmentation are key threats that drive biodiversity loss. Large landscape connectivity enables species movements and gene flow among protected and conserved areas and supports migrations, all key to healthy and resilient landscapes. Local participation in these efforts have ensured community engagement and sustainable socioeconomic benefits. Increasingly, conservation projects are looking to keep natural areas connected or to re-connect them but there are many challenges in doing so.
The Amazon Sustainable Landscapes Program (ASL) together with the Global Wildlife Program (GWP) are delivering a series of knowledge exchange events to support national projects in their planning and implementation activities related to ecological corridors and connectivity.
This webinar will share tools and best practices that can ensure public participation in corridor planning, implementation and/or monitoring.
