The virtual conference on Climate Change, Health and Mountain Ecosystems and their Governance in Support of Sustainable Development in the Tropical Andes – Central America Region (Andes+) offers an opportunity for continued connection, exchange, and learning, addressing the constraints many face with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 for face-to-face interaction.
The conference aims to facilitate an interdisciplinary knowledge exchange among researchers and practitioners on ways to identify opportunities and overcome barriers in order to enable the successful implementation of sustainable development and climate change adaptation in the Andes+ region. Through this event, the Conéctate A+ network seeks to promote collaborative arrangements, embed and advance current debates, articulate the rich collective experience of different communities of practice in the Andes+ region, and invite participants to shape and develop the network into the future.
The conference programme, available for download here, features four keynote speakers, 16 parallel sessions, and two panel discussions exploring the interactions between climate change, mountain ecosystems, and health from an interdisciplinary perspective.
