Building BRIDGEs | Cross-Sectoral Collaboration for Stronger Conservation and Development Outcomes
About the Event
Note: This is a webcast event. The live stream will be available on this webpage on the day of the event. There will be no physical meeting at the Wilson Center.
Sound management of natural resources is integral to a country’s development, resilience, and self-reliance. By promoting development that benefits both nature and people, biodiversity conservation activities can strengthen development impact and the capacity of countries to manage their natural resources, improving their self-reliance.
For the past five years, USAID’s Biodiversity Results and Integrated Development Gains Enhanced (BRIDGE) Project has supported the second goal of USAID’s Biodiversity Policy, to “integrate biodiversity as an essential component of human development.” BRIDGE collaborates with USAID missions and regional and technical bureaus to identify and promote integrated programming approaches and contribute to the evidence base for integration.
Please join the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change & Security Program, in partnership with USAID’s BRIDGE project, for the third panel in a three-part virtual series and hear from researchers and practitioners on lessons learned and entry points for action in the integration of biodiversity conservation, governance, public health, and food security.
