The ER program in Chile supports the implementation of the country’s National Strategy for Climate Change and Vegetation Resources (ENCCRV), which aims to decrease the forest-related social, environmental, and economic vulnerability generated by climate change, desertification, land degradation, and loss of vegetation resources. The program focuses on helping Chile address its main drivers of deforestation through strategic activities such as preventive forest fire management and postfire restoration, sustainable forest management, forest and livestock management models, and sustainable use of vegetation resources, complemented with reforestation of priority areas with native species.
