Combating loss of connectivity in the arc of deforestation in Colombia
Date: October 6, 2022
The collaboration of Comfama, FCDS, The Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, Bioeconomy Graduate School, Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University, Focali and SIANI is organising a panel discussion on land use in the Amazon region in Colombia and alternative ways in agriculture, such as livestock borders.
The seminar series invites a number of panellists to present and discuss the response to the need to transform Colombia’s regions into competitive, democratic, and sustainable ones, based on the recent political transition in the country, where new opportunities for discussion about the Comprehensive Rural Reform (RRI) agreed in the Peace Agreement represents a future roadmap for the sustainable management of land, water, biodiversity and people’s livelihoods.
This seminar will present experts knowledge exchange, around land use changes in the deforestation arc in the Amazon region of Colombia and the role of non-sustainable cattle ranching, with highlights for pathways and possible solutions in considering alternative cattle practices (e.g. regenerative principles) in the agricultural/livestock frontier in the region.
