Putumayo Three Borders

a) OBJECTIVES

At the national level, this Program is working to position itself as an example of a common vision and integrated approach for the conservation of natural areas by reducing threats and biodiversity losses.  On a regional level, it seeks to influence regional management strategies over common ecosystems, public policy, legislation, and private sector practices.  At the local level, the Program promotes the conservation and strengthening of local capacities, operations and governance in each of the areas.  

b) ACTIVITIES

The Project carries out priority activities with a variety of planning tools for the management of the three protected areas, as well as regional integration activities based on the different advances that have been made in the three nations. 

Currently, the project is advancing on a regional scope:

• Supporting the empowerment of the political and technical entities involved in the Program,

• Contributing technical elements to develop a Strategic Plan for the corridor,

• Generating the legal basis of a regional strategy for controlling and monitoring,

• Identifying regional indicators for the effectiveness of corridor management  based on the different evaluation systems in the areas,

• Identifying spaces for dialogues among the authorities, rural residents and indigenous communities in the three countries, as well as in the different exchanges such as those relating to the management plans for natural resources.

The planning and implementation of a REDD Project in Cuyabeno (Ecuador) is advancing in this way.  It includes improving the capacities of the teams in the protected areas and other local actors, as well as catalyzing national and regional spaces to discuss private sector themes that relate to threats to the natural corridor.  Furthermore, it is advancing processes of organizational capacity-building in the three protected areas in themes that facilitate their mission as an environmental authority.  

c) EXPECTED RESULTS

1. Integration agreements and technical coordination systems

2. Economic alternatives and improved forestry fishing / economic mechanisms

3. Public and prívate sector environmental policies value biodiversity, indigenous rights, and environmental services.

Unión Europea

Europe Union

Hasta hace poco las acciones exteriores de la Unión Europea se centraban en tres frentes principales: la política comercial, la ayuda al desarrollo y la dimensión política. Estos elementos ofrecían valiosos instrumentos para aplicar una política exterior plausible en los ámbitos de la diplomacia, la economía y el comercio.

Los cambios económicos y políticos que se producen en el mundo exigen una adaptación continua de las políticas y prioridades exteriores de la Unión Europea. Es así como en la actualidad, la defensa de los derechos humanos, la preservación de la paz y de la seguridad internacionales y la prevención de conflictos -incluidos los de carácter interno- son objetivos fundamentales de la política exterior de la UE.

Tradicionalmente las actividades de la Delegación para Colombia y Ecuador son de:

  • Coordinación con las Embajadas de los Estados Miembros de la UE acreditadas en los dos países y con la Presidencia rotativa de la Unión;
  • Cooperación con las entidades públicas y con los organismos de la sociedad civil representados en Colombia y Ecuador, de acuerdo con las orientaciones de la cooperación de la UE con América Latina.
  • Ayuda Humanitaria directa a través de las oficinas de ECHO en los dos países y de Ayuda Alimentaria en Ecuador.
  • Información a través de la publicación Euronotas y los boletines periódicos para los medios de comunicación.
  • Consulta a través del centro de documentación y la página web.

IMPLEMENTADORES

Tropenbos Internacional Colombia

 

Tropenbos Internacional Colombia Works with educational institutions, government agencies, rural communities and indigenous and Afro Colombian communities to support local research projects in the Amazon region that portray local conditions and help construct mechanisms for the recognition, strengthening and protection of traditional knowledge associated with the conservation and sustainable management of the tropical forests. 

The principal objective of the program is to build a bridge between local and scientific knowledge in order to improve political and legislative decision-making related to the Colombian Amazon.  With this purpose, Tropenbos has adopted a research methodology that promotes dialogue about knowledge of themes including the process of organizing territory, the formulation and execution of natural resource management plans in protected areas, the generation of information related to ecological and socioeconomic demands to improve the application of income-generating initiatives in the indigenous communities and the impact of climate change on the food security of indigenous communities.

AISDESEP

 

AIDESEP is a Peruvian organization led by a National Council consisting of six decentralized entities located in the north, center and south of the country.  It has 57 federations and territorial organizations, which represent 1,350 communities that are home to 350,000 indigenous men and women, grouped into 16 linguistic families. 

AIDESEP promotes and is an important part of the Permanent Conference of Indigenous Peoples of Peru (COPPIP), which brings together groups claiming to politically represent farmers and the indigenous organizations of the coast, highlands and jungle of Peru.

This organization does not promote an anachronistic millenarianism—rather, it is a modern organization that defends its own identity, recognizing their strengths and addressing its weaknesses. In this way, it seeks to bring about democratic change as active participants, and thus be the change that they want to see in the world.
