Attune is implementing Amazonia 2.0
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the confluence of the co-applicant members, which has valuable experiences in the region, propose this "pyramid investment" initiative in terms of decision-making in forest management. They propose to consolidate structures and dynamics that emphasize the participation of local actors, their empowerment and interconnection with the support of all the organizations involved in the project. In this way, rapid and forceful actions will be sought in which environmental and indigenous organizations at the national and regional levels play a central role in political coordination. It seeks to strengthen and echo and position local voices using the media and technological networks to consolidate a timely reaction that manages to contain a large part of the threats to forests and their resources.
This proposal will be implemented by IUCN and its members in each of the countries of the Amazon basin, which are: 1) ECORED of Peru, NGO expert in the implementation of indigenous forestry systems, a scheme that empowers and strengthens the capacities of indigenous organizations and leaders. 2) ECOCIENCIA in Ecuador, is part of the Amazon Network of Georeferenced Socio-Environmental Information (RAISG), and for 30 years has contributed to Ecuadorian conservation, its protected areas system and the formation of generations of environmentalists who today lead the agenda of conservation. 3) Fundación Natura - Colombia, which for more than 30 years has contributed to the management of protected areas, management of indigenous territories, land management, REDD + and obligatory environmental compensation of productive sectors, carbon markets, promotion and strengthening of management capacities Sustainable forest management and best practices. 4) Association of IUCN organizations in Brazil, Brazilian organization, established in 2010 as operational arm of the Union's agenda in Brazil. It has developed innovative mechanisms to develop landscape restoration programs in synergy with REDD + involving the private sector. 5) ATTUNE of Suriname, which develops activities and projects focused on the empowerment of indigenous groups and local communities for the preservation of their culture and forest management and has experience in the design and facilitation of multi-sectoral dialogues. 6) IWOKRAMA that implemented the "Community Monitoring, Reporting and Verification or cMRV" project with 20 communities in Guyana and developed a team of trainers who today train in government other communities that also carry out forest monitoring.
