Katoomba Meeting XX – Climate, forests, water and people: A vision for development for tropical America

22-23 April 2014, Lima (Peru)


For 15 years, the Katoomba Group has convened global experts and leaders to advance the frontier of ecosystem services approaches.

In 2014, just months before Lima hosts over 190 countries to advance international climate negotiations at the 20th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Ministry of Environment of Peru, the National Water Authority of Peru and Forest Trends will convene the 20th Katoomba Meeting – Climate, forests, water and people: A vision for alignment in tropical America.

The event will identify opportunities for climate policy and finance to align with other public and private investments and commitments to ensure that forests and other ecosystems continue to provide critical support for a stable climate and resilient societies.
