Marina Campos: When forest conservation meets human rights-The Rainforest Foundation’s approach

5:30-6:45pm, Monday, Oct. 22nd, 2012, Physics 130

For over 20 years the Rainforest Foundation’s mission has been to support indigenous and traditional forest peoples in their efforts to protect their environment and fulfill their rights. We argue that recognizing the rights of forest peoples is one of the most effective strategies to maintain standing forests. In this talk, Marina will discuss the effectiveness, as well as the opportunities and challenges that this approach provides for the conservation of tropical rainforests.

ALSO, that same day- October 22nd– we will be doing an informal coffee hour with Marina, 12:00-1:30pm in LSRC A109. This will be an opportunity for students to drop in and talk to Marina about her work at the Rainforest Foundation US, rights-based conservation, her experience with REDD+, or her previous work on climate change with the Brazilian government.
