III Latin American and Caribbean Congress of Protected Areas
"Under the theme ”Solutions for welfare and sustainable development”, the III Latin American and Caribbean Congress of Protected Areas will be held from 14-17 October 2019. A space for experience exchange, debate on the formulation and implementation of public policies, research and academia, the Congress –created in 1997– is an initiative from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and its World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA). The Congress will also reflect the debates and conclusions of the Latin America and Caribbean region in terms of IUCN global events, in particular the World Parks Congress. In this regard, this III Latin American and Caribbean Congress of Protected Areas will incorporate The Promise of Sydney (World Parks Congress 2014) and take a regional position to the next IUCN World Conservation Congress, in 2020."
