About


Colombia is at a crossroads in its history as the peace process has now provided the opportunity for not only a peaceful and economically dynamic society, but to wisely use its natural capital and conserve the country’s biological richness. However these challenges and issues are complex and are masked by other effects such as climate change, urbanization, geopolitical trends, culture, etc. For example, Colombia currently has about 73% of its population living in cities and climate change is drastically affecting its ecosystems. The social, economic and ecological value and resiliency of its ecosystems also need to be better understood and promoted by both policy-makers and society. As a result, transdisciplinary approaches, strategies and experiences from other regions and researchers are needed. This event will bring global experts to share their knowledge and insight on how conservation, climate change, restoration, and socio-ecological resilience sciences can be used to develop sustainable strategies to ensure that Colombia´s natural capital will be equitably distributed and preserved for future generations.
