Building BRIDGEs | Cross-Sectoral Approaches to Biodiversity Conservation: Health, Nutrition, and Ecosystem Services

The event will start promptly at 9:30 am EDT on this page. If the event does not immediately appear on the webpage, please refresh your screen at 9:30 am. 

Sound management of natural resources is integral to a country’s development, resilience, and self-reliance. By promoting development that benefits both nature and people, biodiversity conservation activities can strengthen development impact and the capacity of countries to manage their natural resources, improving their self-reliance.
 
For the past five years, USAID’s Biodiversity Results and Integrated Development Gains Enhanced (BRIDGE) Project has supported the second goal of USAID’s Biodiversity Policy, to “integrate biodiversity as an essential component of human development.” BRIDGE collaborates with USAID missions and regional and technical bureaus to identify and promote integrated programming approaches and contribute to the evidence base for integration.

Please join the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change & Security Program, in partnership with USAID’s BRIDGE project, for the first panel in a three-part virtual series and hear from researchers and practitioners on lessons learned and entry points for action in the integration of biodiversity conservation, governance, public health, and food security.

During the Q&A portion of the event, questions for the panelists may be sent to ecsp@wilsoncenter.org. Join the conversation on Twitter at @NewSecurityBeat. You can find more coverage of these issues on our blog, NewSecurityBeat.org.

Global Risk and Resilience Program

The Global Risk and Resilience Program (GRRP) seeks to support the development of inclusive, resilient networks in local communities facing global change. By providing a platform for sharing lessons, mapping knowledge, and linking people and ideas, GRRP and its affiliated programs empower policymakers, practitioners, and community members to participate in the global dialogue on sustainability and resilience. Empowered communities are better able to develop flexible, diverse, and equitable networks of resilience that can improve their health, preserve their natural resources, and build peace between people in a changing world.  Read more
