EVENTS: Amazon Protected Areas, Natural Solutions to Climate Change 

The Latin American Technical Cooperation Network on National Parks, other Protected Areas and Wildlife (REDPARQUES) and WWF Living Amazon Initiative, will be hosting a side event at COP21 in the framework of the Amazon Vision project ‘Protected Areas, Natural Solutions to Climate Change (NASCC)’ with the objective of discussing the importance of protected areas, of the Amazon biome and beyond, in terms of climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience. The event will also serve as a platform to deliver the REDPARQUES Declaration to the COP signed by 17 Latin American countries on the need to integrate protected areas in global climate planning and finance.  
"This is a very important step towards a much needed integration of protected areas in the global climate planning and finance regime, and a crucial contribution for strengthening the role of nature-based strategies within the UNFCCC"  Sandra Charity - Leader of the Living Amazon Initiative of WWF
