This past September, Conservation Strategy Fund partnered with the Cerrado Institute (Instiuto Cerrados) to host a virtual seminar in Brazil on the economic and social implications of increased pesticide use in farming practices in the Brazilian Cerrado. Because of the increased use of harmful pesticides in farming along with reduced government regulation and oversight, local communities across Brazil have struggled with the associated health risks and resulting environmental damage.
In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, CSF Indonesia held its first-ever webinar as a part of our collaborative engagement with the Sintang District Government in West Kalimantan, Indonesia for its Green Sintang Action Plan.
