DarwinNet is a bi-national, transboundary initiative that aims to gather, repatriate, analyze and disseminate information on the dry forests of the Northwest Peru and Southwest Ecuador. This zone, also known as the Tumbesian Region, is recognized worldwide for its high biological value, especially in terms of endemic species, but also for its high level of degradation and deforestation, thus making it a global priority for conservation. This side event will present the main outcomes and experiences of this CHM focused on specific ecosystem, after two years of implementation.
