Ancestral adaptation plans to climate change with a focus on peace, gender and youth
We are a NGO dedicated to the development of socio-environmental initiatives and projects that seek to promote community empowerment and decision-making on climate change at different levels of society. As a laboratory of ideas and solutions to climate change, we promote climate action through the development projects with a focus on peace, ancestry, youth and gender that prevent human rights violations and improve the quality of life, especially for children, young people and women.
We accompany communities highly vulnerable to climate change in Colombia to design plans that allow them to adapt to this phenomenon, with women, girls and young people as protagonists, encouraging their leadership and their own initiatives and prioritizing traditional, popular and identity-based knowledge. The plans are guided by four priority lines of action: education and training with a climate focus, economic and productive strengthening, risk management and conservation of strategic ecosystems, in such a way that they are environmentally and temporally sustainable. We want to accompany communities in the 6 biodiverse regions of Colombia, we are currently working in the Andean region, in the Boyacá’s department and the Amazon region in the Putumayo’s department.
In three years, we will benefit more than 5,000 people in Colombia, especially women, children and young people, guiding them in their process of adaptation to climate change in their territories, through action plans that are structured with the axes of education, economic strengthening, conservation and risk management.
