First Taste of Experiences in San Martin, Peru

Oct 9, 2022

Governor Bogarin, current co-chair of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF Task Force) and host of an important “Intercambio de Experiencias” that launches on Monday, October 10 in San Martin, Peru, provided GCF Task Force Project Director Jason Gray with a first taste of the efforts underway in San Martin, Peru to demonstrate practical activities and programs that can reduce current drivers of deforestation while providing farmers, rural producers, and others with sustainable economic options. This included a visit to a government supported native plant nursery and a government supported, solar-powered, native fish hatchery.
