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.
Governor Pedro Bogarin and his team, along with the GCF Task Force, and many public, private, and community actors, will be welcoming GCF Task Force Governors, delegates, and partners to visit these activities and programs in the field on Monday, October 10 and throughout the week to exchange experiences and learn from one another.
More information on this “Intercambio de Experiencias” is available here and in Spanish. We are excited to post more as the week progresses!
