SARAS developed a meeting amongst International experts in Biodiversity and Protected Areas of the Neotropics

From the 25 to the 27 of September SARAS2 Institute hosted a meeting for Project Space Planning for Protected areas in Response to the Climate change (SPARC).

Pablo Marquet (from well renowned Universidad Catolica of Chile) organized this activity, with the support of SARAS2 Institute, to united specialists in subjects of biodiversity, protected areas and climate change from: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile,Ecuador, Mexico, Spain, the United States,Portugal, and Uruguay. 

The SPARC project, was economically funded by Global Environment Facility– GEF, of the Program of the United Nations for the Development, which arose for the necessity to improve the systems of protected areas in tropical regions (Neotrópics, Africa and Asia). The objective would be, the construction of scenes in the three regions, to understand better the threats derived from the climate change and the opportunities of adaptation in protected areas. At the same time this project will try to maximize the work in networks of the experts, looking to generate information on the movement of key species to conserve from a regional perspective. 

The contributions of SPARC will allow to establish the bases for the elaboration of policies for the planning and management of protected areas,with the purpose of increasing the capacity of adaptation and resilience of the ecosystems in the selected regions.
