Objective of the event

Present and discuss the role of Finance in fostering Conservation in private properties in the Amazon.


Description

CONSERV is an initiative led by IPAM and partners that is testing a model which compensates farmers who have chosen to conserve areas that could legally be deforested in their properties. The objective of this side event is to present CONSERV to the general public and showcase its results to date. 

We will discuss the challenges of implementation and opportunities for CONSERV to gain scale, while contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation through avoided emissions from legal deforestation, maintenance of habitat for biodiversity whilst fostering sustainable agriculture and ranching practices. 

The role of large-scale finance will also be discussed, as it will enable CONSERV to target at-risk areas, avoiding emissions which could occur legally and stimulating sustainable crop production.
