Dr. Kinari Webb
Audience Open to the Public

Dr. Kinari Webb will speak about a radical new approach to conservation which centers rainforest community expertise about the interconnected drivers of deforestation and how to partner together around the world to reverse rainforest loss. Rainforest communities frequently identify the lack of access to healthcare and alternative livelihoods as key factors that increase logging. Dr. Webb will speak about the dramatic impact of precisely implementing community-determined solutions for protecting forest and talk about how this could be scaled globally.
