CAMA 2023 Environmental Conference
#1
Radio Sintonia:

The conservation of habitats in the Canary Islands, the focus of the CAMA 2023 Environmental Conference.

The Cabildo of Fuerteventura, through the Ministry of the Environment, today began a new edition of the CAMA-Atlantic Conference on the Environment. Over three days, a total of fifteen environmental experts will give more than 25 hours of talks and activities, focusing this year on the conservation of the habitats of the Canary Islands. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th, the Fuerteventura Technology Park will host a series of conferences and round tables, as well as field trips.

The opening ceremony was attended by the president of the Cabildo, Lola García, the councillor of the area, Carlos Rodríguez, and the manager of the Fuerteventura Technology Park, Eduardo Pereira.

According to the island's president, Lola García, "the Canary Islands is a fragile territory due to the effects of climate change and, precisely for this reason, it is the ideal place for pilot projects to be started here to find solutions to transfer them to other territorial areas. Some of those that have been developed in Fuerteventura are world-leading, hence the importance of this type of forums that allow these initiatives to be made known to citizens, technical staff and groups".

The Minister of the Environment, Carlos Rodríguez, showed his excitement "at the beginning of a series of environmental awareness days that are very important to know, protect and improve our environment". Likewise, Rodríguez pointed out that "from the Cabildo we are working on different actions that contribute to mitigating the effects of climate change and the regeneration of the natural environment, such as, for example, the restoration of surface water use systems such as the maretas and gavias".

The professor of soil science and agricultural chemistry at the University of La Laguna, Francisco Javier Díaz, gave the first of the presentations, where he addressed soil management and the conservation of palm groves, explaining that CAMA is the ideal forum to address some of the problems faced by palm groves, highlighting soil quality as the main cause. as it affects them at the hydric, nutritional and salinity levels. In addition, he highlighted "the close link that exists between agricultural activity", indicating that "the restoration of palm groves entails the repair of water use systems such as gavias".
