The thematic sector “Forest, Biodiversity and Ecosystems” (FBE) is one of the 6 sectors implemented in the EUROCLIMA+ program.

Since 2019, nine projects in twelve countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have strengthened the resilience of vulnerable populations and ecosystems. As a result, they have contributed to climate change adaptation and mitigation, contributing to the generation of green jobs, and addressing biodiversity loss in the region. In 2021, three projects were extended to provide continuity and expand ongoing actions.

Our objectives

We promote innovative projects and initiatives in the FBE thematic sector, in order to conserve the natural resources / increase carbon sequestration of ecosystems and contribute to the resilience of people to climate change impacts, through nature and in alignment with the public policies of each country.

We strengthen institutional capacities for the integration of the “Forests, Biodiversity and Ecosystems” approach in public policies and in subnational and national agendas and processes.

Capitalizamos experiencias demostrativas y exitosas de gestión sostenible de los ecosistemas que puedan ser replicadas en otros países.
