The Regional Dialogues are virtual meetings to bring science closer to policy and practice, and to outline innovative ideas on the sustainable development of the Andean mountains.

Dialogue approach:

Integrated socio-environmental monitoring is vital to understand the current territorial configuration of Andean mountain socio-ecosystems and the trends of their changes in the coming decades. Only by linking multiscale and socioecological approaches is it possible to understand new phenomena such as teleconnections, the global movement of people and raw materials, and changes in land cover and land use. The ultimate motivation is for data to be incorporated into planning tools and decision making processes, hence the need to network and adequately communicate results.

Key contributions of this dialogue:

  • Present the state of the art of integration between social and environmental monitoring in the Andes.
  • Share innovations such as the concept of long-term learning sites.
  • Share regional experiences.
