Botanic Garden Networks in Latin America and the Caribbean
Regional and national botanic garden networks are an essential tool to take action for the conservation of plant diversity in a more coordinated and efficient way.
The Caribbean and Central American Botanic Garden Network
The Caribbean and Central American Botanic Garden Network was established in 2013 to bring regional gardens together to support each other, set standards and promote their conservation work in the region.
The Caribbean and Central American Botanic Garden Network holds a congress every two years with the name of ‘Botanical Bridges’. This event provides a platform to engage and stimulate conversations and debates among the country representatives on core issues affecting botanic gardens. The first congress was held in Panamá in September 2016. The second congress took place at the Jardín Botánico Nacional de La Habana, Cuba in April 2018.
In March 2020, the ‘Botanical Bridges III’ congress will take place in the Jardín Botánico Nacional Dr. Rafael Moscoso de Santo Domingo, República Dominicana. For more information contact Jardín Botánico Nacional Dr. Rafael Moscoso de Santo Domingo,
