GCILS seminar: Understanding Sembrando Vida: Mexico’s Flagship Reforestation Programme

Thursday 25 November, 2.30pm - 4.30pm

In this online GCILS webinar, academics, civil society and NGO actors, and community representatives will discuss ‘Sembrando Vida’ – the new flagship programme for reforestation that is currently being operationalised in Chiapas, Mexico, and that has recently been promoted by the Mexican and US governments at COP26 in Glasgow as part of the solution to climate change. Speakers in the first panel will locate this programme against a broader background of state-led development initiatives . The second panel will feature representatives from constituencies in Chiapas who will share their experiences with Sembrando Vida on the ground. Please join us for two hours of discuss and debate!

The webinar will take place online via Zoom, and English and Spanish translations will be available.
