Lacmont will present experience reports
The sharing of experiences related to activities developed in mountain environments is always profitable and inspiring. That is why Lacmont 2021, a 100% online and free event that will be held between May 11th and 13th, will make room for participants to share their experiences, especially those held in a network, in order to build and solidify knowledge that contributes to sustainable development in these locations. Those interested in participating must register for the event and then send a text of a maximum of 5,000 characters for the organizing committee’s evaluation. The deadline for submission ends on April 23th.
The reports can address experiences in the themes of agroecology, conservation and value aggregation to agrobiodiversity products, adaptation to climate change, rural tourism, forest conservation, soil and water, as well as territorial development, ecosystem services, public policies and adequate land use in rural and urban areas, among others related to mountains.
The text should be sent in Portuguese/English or Spanish/English, and follow a series of recommendations for suitability of the format. The Technical Committee will analyze the reports received considering adherence to the theme, relevance, originality, impact of the experience and text clarity. All approved reports will be included in the event annals and 10 will be selected for oral presentation during Lacmont 2021, on May 11 and 12. Check here guidelines for submission of experience reports.
