The AFD and The FFEM launched on Tuesday April 13 the multi-country project TerrIndigena, which aims to support the organizational processes of 18 indigenous communities in the Amazon in three countries: Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador.
This initiative will be developed in collaboration with the Gaia Amazonas Foundation (Colombia), the EcoCiencia Foundation (Ecuador) and the Instituto de Pesquisa e Formação Indígena - Iepé (Brazil). It also partners with several civil society organizations or NGOs with experience of working with indigenous communities, who protect the largest tropical forest in the world.
The project will allocate 5.72 million euros to strengthen the protection of more than 17 million hectares in the Amazon region of northern Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador. This natural area, today one of the best preserved in the region, is facing increasing environmental threats, such as deforestation, overexploitation of resources and pollution of water and soil, which weaken indigenous communities.
