Bridges in the Andes: Transiting Towards Sustainability

The International Mountain Day, to be celebrated next December, is an excellent setting to analyze the most important advances made in the generation of knowledge, the formulation of policies and sustainable management in the Andes, but also to discuss about the enormous challenges we continue to face. One of the main challenges is to understand the implications of the interaction of climate change and changes in land use regarding the de- sign of integrated management strategies of socio-ecosystems and their- transition towards more sustainable development trajectories.

CONDESAN, the Humboldt Institute and UNEP propose to celebrate the International Mountain Day with the event Bridges in the Andes: Transiting towards Sustainability, from December 8 to 10, 2021. The event has two sections: a Virtual Conference on Transitions towards Sustainability in Scenarios of Environmental Change in the Andes and the First National Meeting of Experiences on the Integrated Management of Paramos in Colombia.

OBJECTIVE

The objective of the event Bridges in the Andes: Transiting towards Sustainability is to create open spaces for multi-actor dialogue designed to count on a broad and transdisciplinary view of the main advances and new challenges for the integrated management of Andean ecosystems, landscapes and societies.

WORK METHODOLOGY

Both the Regional Virtual Conference on Transitions towards Sustainability and the Colombian National Meeting on Paramo Integrated Management will take place between December 8 to 10, 2021, with the installation of four spaces: 1) Keynote Speeches, 2) Academic Sessions, 3) Experience Panels, and 4) Meeting between Peers. The aim of these different gatherings is to involve a wide group of actors, including those who do not specifically have mountain ecosystems in their scope of action, but who through their activities influence their situation and conservation. The idea is to build bridges between sectors that have direct or indirect influence on the management and conservation of Andean socio-ecosystems.
