COMSATS Center for Climate and Sustainability (CCCS) together with United Nations Environment Programme- International Ecosystem Management Program (UNEP-IEMP) cordially invite you to attend a Virtual Conference on the occasion of World Environment Day 2021 on the topic:

“Ecosystem Restoration in the Global South”

on Monday, 7 June 2021

from 3:00-5:00 PM (GMT+5)

via Zoom link

Our planet is under increasing threats from ecological degradation, declining biodiversity, worsening desertification and frequent extreme weather events that pose severe challenges to human survival. Particularly, 1 billion people in over 100 developing countries are locked in the cycle of poverty and environmental degradation made worse by the effects of climate change. On the other hand, healthy ecosystems and their services provide opportunities for sustainable economic prosperity while at the same time providing defence against the negative effects of climate change.

Embracing the theme of Ecosystem Restoration, this virtual conference will bring together key experts in the fields of ecosystem restoration, conservation, and sustainable management from the Global South to share good practices and lessons learnt of ecosystem research and management, as well as to explore partnership opportunities to further collaborate on the topics of ecosystem restoration.
