Dialogue between Science and Policy: Opportunities for Discussion and Analysis

Tuesday, 19 April, 2016 - 08:45

Several Andean organizations are working on mountain ecosystems, allowing for closer collaboration and cooperation. OIKOS and CONDESAN are a clear example of partners working together.

In a changing climate, informing and raising awareness about the role of mountains as sources of life, biodiversity and culture; their importance for sustainable development; the goods and services they provide that are essential to humanity, contribute to the generation of knowledge on sustainable mountain development and its impact on decision-making policies at local, national and regional level.

Joining forces is better than working in isolation. This belief has led to the decision by OIKOS - an organization focused on the development of projects related to the sustainable use of natural resources, social welfare, environmental and public health - and the Consortium for Sustainable Development of the Andean Ecoregion (CONDESAN) - an Andean organization aimed at development actions that promote the sustainable management of natural resources, generation of environmental information and mountain area advocacy support - to carry out a series of conferences throughout 2016 called Diálogos entre la Ciencia y la Política: Espacios para el Encuentro y el Análisis”, or Dialogues between Science and Policy: Opportunities for Discussion and Analysis.

These dialogues seek to create knowledge-sharing opportunities among research, policy and civil society representatives, in order to analyse issues relevant to the global and national agenda for sustainable mountain development (SMD) and strengthen decision-making in the Andean region.

The first dialogue of the series is called: "Implications of the Paris Climate Change Agreement (COP21) in the management of water resources", and will be held on 29 April at 5pm in Auditorio Anatomía - Facultad de Medicina Veterinaria, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, in Lima, Peru.

If you are in Lima, you are invited to participate and join us in this first SMD dialogue.
