Climate change and forests
Advocating for national policies on Climate Change and Forests to ensure the protection of the territories of Indigenous peoples.
Fundación Pachamama advocates for policies on Climate Change and Forests to ensure the protection of the territories of Indigenous peoples.
Forest loss and degradation is both a cause and an effect of our changing climate.
They also participate in national and international discussions about strategies to reduce deforestation and forest degradation such as the UN COP Climate Summits.
Supporting “Planes de Vida”
Fundación Pachamama is helping the Sápara people with a “plan de vida” natural resource plan for their territory so they may optimize and sustainably manage the resources in their territories.
Natural resource plans are created through collaborative decision-making, and provide tools for self-governance and participatory management that harnesses the collective wisdom of the community.
Forests and Climate Change
Ecuador is one of many countries with a UN-REDD National Program. Fundación Pachamama helps Indigenous groups understand how Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) policies, and the Ecuadorian Government’s negotiations and implementation of these policies, will affect their lands and territories. It is also working to get Ecuador’s government to take collective rights into account in its REDD policy negotiations.
