Welthungerhilfe and OroVerde kindly invite you to see and discuss with us insights from our Caribbean project: Ecosystem-based adaptation and forest restoration for increased resilience:  Experiences and strategies from Haiti, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic to make vulnerable communities and critical ecosystems more resilient in the face of climate change.

We are happy to present Yulissa Alvarez from the local organization Centro Naturaleza (Dominican Republic), have Johannes Horstmann from OroVerde talking about the work in Haiti and Cuba, and introduce Jose Gerhartz from the Caribbean Biological Corridor (although in video). Toa Loaiza Lange from the German Government (BMU/IKI) and Ulrike Krauss from the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund will share their views from a donors perspective. Michael Kühn from Welthungerhilfe is moderating the event. Panellists therefore will highlight how the project’s EbA-approach helps to integrate ecosystem conservation, restoration and adaptation to climate change while assuring food security in rural communities, aiming at creating local ownership. Further, the threat of climate change impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning will be presented with examples from Hispaniola, along with recommendations for much needed mitigation and adaptation strategies. 

A link, where to virtually follow this event will be made available in due course, in any case the event will be webcast at least on the following websites:
