International Climate Initiative DecarBOOST
A Low Carbon Future for the Amazon
Stefanía Sibille Grández is part of a knowledge management team informing local populations, governments, and businesses on regional decarbonization trends and opportunities in one of the world’s most critical ecosystems, the Amazon. She enrolled in the Tropical Forest Landscapes online certificate program to develop a more holistic approach to the initiative she works on across South America.
As a member of the International Climate Initiative’s DecarBOOST knowledge management team in South America, Stefanía Sibille Grández informs local populations, governments, and businesses on regional decarbonization trends and opportunities. She also promotes dialogue between the public and private sectors. Working in Argentina, Brazil, and her native Peru, she has supported more than 15 environmental projects, facilitating agreements on sustainable investment between governments, local organizations, and banks and public financial institutions. She also supports private companies from multiple industries in calculating their carbon footprint.
Sibille Grández enrolled in the Tropical Forest Landscapes online certificate program to gain a more holistic understanding of the ecological, social, political, and financial aspects of the conservation and restoration initiatives with which she engages.
“The TFL program, with its interdisciplinary approach, is providing me with theoretical and applied knowledge that will allow me to propose improvement actions in the reforestation initiatives I work with, as well as expand my analysis capacity in the design of these projects,” she says. “The shared lessons learned from conservation and restoration initiatives in various tropical forests and the exchange of ideas with my peers from around the world are providing a more global view of these critical issues.”
