CSRio Seminar: “Beyond Protected Areas: the role of other areas for the conservation of biodiversity”
On the next CSRio seminar, we will welcome the biologist Helena Alves-Pinto, who will present her doctoral thesis “Beyond Protected Areas: the role of other areas for the conservation of biodiversity.”. In the presentation, Helena will talk about the contribution of the measures allowed in areas, such as the “OECMs” for the conservation of biodiversity, in the context of Meta Aichi 11 and the Post 2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
The presentation will take place by videoconference on April 30, 2020, from 17:00 to 19:00. The link to access the online seminar will be sent soon.
Helena is a biologist from the University of São Paulo and master’s degree in Applied Ecology and Conservation from the University of East Anglia, in the United Kingdom. During his master’s degree, she assessed the impacts of economic incentives for conservation in traditional communities in the Brazilian Amazon. Complementing her research, she worked as consultant for the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security Research Program, and for the University of Michigan, where she investigated the contributions, opportunities and challenges of certification mechanisms in the livestock chain to reduce deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. Both at the International Institute for Sustainability and at the Conservation and Sustainability Science Center, she works on topics related to conservation, land use change, economic incentives, political ecology and conservation in private areas. Recently she obtained a doctoral degree from the Graduate Program in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, studying the contribution of measures based on areas, such as Protected Areas and OECMs, for the conservation of biodiversity
