New Colombia green belt provides protective barrier for Amazon biome

A 9.2 million hectare landscape restoration corridor in Colombia will link the borders of Brazil and Ecuador to halt further degradation of the Amazon, said Walter Vergara, senior fellow at World Resources Institute, speaking at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Investment Case Summit in Washington.

The green belt is one of several examples under the 20×20 Initiative Vergara detailed at the event, which attracted 250 delegates and focused on the financial aspects of landscape restoration.
