Gaia Amazonas supports the sustainable management of this singular biocultural diverse region by facilitating and enabling effective and efficient environmental governance systems and setting adequate legal frameworks in place. Our goal by 2020 is to consolidate the conservation and governance strategies over eight million hectares of tropical Rainforest in Colombia. This constitutes the first concrete strategy for the establishment of an environmental governance framework in the entire Amazon Basin which articulates indigenous local governments with State and private actors in the region.
Communities are committed to protect the rainforest with traditionally derived conservation plans that are transparent, effective and articulated to state environmental and development plans.
We work for State actors to be engaged with Indigenous Communities as partners for the protection and sustainable development of the Amazon rainforest by effective institutional endorsement of Environmental protection policies and programs.
We promote collaborative action with civil society organizations, indigenous organizations, public entities and the private sector to generate a regional impact on Amazon conservation and social and environmental welfare.
We promote lessons, dialogues and research among intercultural subjects as a basis for the construction of knowledge and its application for the conservation of the environment, territorial management and the solution of local problems.
