Belizean Economist attends Savanna Fire Management workshop in Australia

Posted: Monday, February 27, 2023. 3:57 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Ministry of Economic Development (MED) noted that Economist Leroy Martinez, who is the Green Climate Fund Focal Point within the Climate Finance Unit, was invited by the Indigenous Carbon Industry Network to participate in 2 workshops on Savanna Fire Management at Charles Darwin University, Darwin, Australia.

Martinez participated in the workshop from February 21-25, 2023.

Over 300 delegates participated in both events and during Australia’s Annual Fire Forum, participants were able to see significant advances and challenges faced by indigenous fire management practices.

In addition, at the International Savanna Management Initiative Workshop, participants discussed global financing and offset opportunities, research and development opportunities and developing and implementing market based projects.

“The International Savanna Management Initiative Workshop was essentially important for Belize to have representation as it builds on a Readiness Project that was approved by the Green Climate Fund, intended to prepare Belize for future developments on Traditional Fire Management (TFM) and reduction of emissions, and use of TFM as a key climate change and fire management response,” the Ministry stated.

The project is set be implemented by the Forest Department, in partnership with the MED.
