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

9 projects in 12 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change. As a result, they contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation, to the generation of green jobs, and to address biodiversity loss in the region.

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.
