Technical teams from the SICA region strengthen knowledge and skills to measure restoration

Technical teams from the Ministries of Environment and the forestry sector of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and the Dominican Republic were participating in the workshop "Analysis and Quantification of Ecosystem Services" from February 10-14, where they calculated the amount of forest carbon, biological connectivity, water infiltration and potential erosion that characterize the prioritized territories in each country for the restoration of ecosystems and landscapes.

The workshop is part of the capacity building provided by the Central American Commission on Environment and Development (CCAD), with the technical and financial support of the European Union and the German Federal Government, to the member countries of SICA as part of the actions being developed with the Green Development Fund for the SICA region /REDD+ Landscape to support countries in fulfilling their international restoration commitments.

"This workshop is part of a capacity building process where technical teams mapped and quantified tree cover from high resolution satellite images and secondary geospatial data; they then assessed the status of ecosystem services associated with the tree component in the landscapes of each of the prioritized territories," explained Jan Bock, director of the Green Development Fund for the SICA region.

The Green Development Fund for the SICA region/REDD+ Landscape is an initiative funded by the European Union and the Federal Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Germany (BMU) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in coordination with the Commission on Environment and Development (CCAD) that seeks to consolidate and integrate financial mechanisms, implementation and monitoring at the regional level and provides resources to finance ecosystem restoration projects in priority landscapes.
