  /    /  Forests & The Roots of Resilience

Date: Sunday 7th November 2021

Time: 11:30 – 14:00 BST

Venue: Online Webinar

Hosted by The UNDP Rome Centre for Sustainable Development (RCSD) & Centre for Climate Technology & Network (CTCN)

Dr Sheila Ochugboju – Moderator

Forests provide a multitude of ecosystems services and benefits to the health and well-being of communities. They are home to some of our planet’s most extraordinary biodiversity and are essential in the fight against climate change. Whilst the focus of many activities on climate action is tree planting, trees alone do not constitute a forest, the complex balance of nature and interaction with wildlife and communities define every forest.

 

This event will explore three critical contributors to the “Roots of Resilience” for forest and communities and bring panellists from East, West and Central Africa, to discuss:

The science behind promoting ecologically resilient ecosystems in rainforests, mangroves, and urban forests.

How forest communities are keeping forests alive in Nigeria, Cameroon, and Kenya from the threat of deforestation, poachers, and urban developments. Highlight those forests are more than natural resource pools, they also form the basis of identities for many communities, providing necessary spaces cultural and religious activities, and offering a reservoir of knowledge to held by indigenous communities about medicinal plants, healing waters and indigenous innovations to adapt to climate change.

The Power of community forest associations which are advocating for the preservation of forests and developing innovative solution for their sustainable growth for future generations to enjoy.
