    The signature of the Memorandum of Understanding among Colombia, Peru and Ecuador has been one of the most important achievements currently obtained regarding the sustainable development for the Amazonas. With this, the three countries ratify the will to find joint mechanisms for the coordinated management of border protected areas, joined geographical and biologically with a great variety of cultures.

    78% of the protected areas created between 2003 and 2009 are in the Amazo-nas biome area: 2.16% of the total protected areas in the world. In the nine countries that it covers, these areas represent approximately 21% of the total region not including 26% of the lands and indigenous territories in other categories that contribute to the conservation of biodiversity.

    This is a border zone crossed by the Putumayo River, one of the most affluent rivers in the Amazonas, therefore, the work carried out in coordination among the 3 bordering countries, to keep biodiversity and integration of the indig-enous towns and border communities, is very valuable.

    The medium basin of the Putumayo River comprises around two million hec-tares, covering three protected areas and their influence zones; the Cuyabeno Fauna Production Reserve (Ecuador, 600.000 ha), the Gueppi Reserve (Peru, 625,971 ha) and the La Paya National Natural Park (Colombia, 422.000 ha).

    Likewise, the initiative seeks to contribute to the protection of the large diver-sity found in the basin, the variety of ecological, social and economic values and environmental services that, at the same time, contribute to maintain climate changes at regional and global level.

    A TRI-NATIONAL INITIATIVE, TO GENERATE AN IN-TEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF THREE BORDER PROTECTED AREAS IN THE MEDIUM BASIN OF THE PUTUMAYO RIVER AMONG COLOMBIA, ECUADOR AND PERU.

  • Its importance lies in reaffirming the support and commitment with the Work Program in the Protected Areas, established by the Biological Diversity Agreement (CBD). It aims to constitute and maintain national and regional complete systems, efficiently managed, as well as to contribute to the achievement of the three objectives of the Agreement and the goals of the Strategic Plan adopted in Nagoya in the COP10 of the CDB. The Secretary of the CDB recognized our efforts in the conservation of the Amazonas as one of the most important successful issues, particularly through its protected areas, reducing loss of biodiversity, while other studies evaluated the contribution of these protected areas in the reduction of carbon emissions.

    This agreement, carried out with the support of the OEA, is consistent with the initiatives of cooperation for the conservation in border zones of the community of Andean Nations (CAN), in particular in the concept of Border integration Zones, and with the Andean strategy of trans-border areas, that identifies this zone as of high priority in the vegetation area called Bosque Pluvial Amazonico (a subunit of humid forests to very humid of Napo). Also, it joins the Colombia-Peru Plan for the integrated development of the Putumayo River Basin.

    To sign the Agreement of Understanding, among these three governments, is an example of progress and implementation of regional and sub regional policies and plans in the Amazonas region that aims to maintain conservation of biodiversity in shared ecosystems. These are instruments that show the interest of the countries to deal with environmental topics together, and we expect these plans will result in action policies at regional, national and local level.

    Strengthening of a process of environmental management was shared by the protected areas among the 3 States as well as the gradual involvement of the social parties, contributing to the conservation of the protected natural sites and the conservation of the biological diversity in the Amazonas Biome, specially at the reserve of the Pleistoceno of the Putumayo region.

    This memorandum recognizes the achieved goals to date: advancements in management and in the initiative to tend for an ecological and functional connectivity, the contribution of governing schemes for the coordinated management of the 3 protected areas and the increment of levels of governability of same, through the generation of agreements with the local communities, institutions and other entities present in the region.

    In conclusion, this memorandum represents, for the three governments, the formal subscription of one of the integrated strategies of conservation with the protected areas. This implies main guidelines and integration among the countries in the handling of ecologic processes and interaction beyond borders, contributing to the effective management of the three adjacent protected areas in border zones.

    Additionally, it seeks to apply for a management plan beyond borders, focused on the ecosystem and it represents an innovating model of governability of the units of conservation in virtue of the regional collaboration among neighbor countries, in order to improve capacities of rangers and the mitigation of negative impacts of key threats and hence constitute an example to be replicated in the region.

  • EVENT

    The Shuar Charap indigenous Center and the Kichwa Zancudo Cocha Community, located in the Cuyabeno Fauna Production Reserve, have been incorporated this year to the Socio Bosque Program.

    The Socio Bosque Program is an initiative of Ecuador. It is implemented by the Environmental Ministry that provides an incentive to indigenous communities and peasants that voluntarily compromise themselves to the conservation and protection of the native forests, wetlands and other native vegetable formations. As a strategy to strengthen the conservation of resources in protected areas, we recognized the incorporation of indigenous communities located in the protected areas of this program, from March 2010.

    The two communities have included 39.984 hectares of tropical wetlands in the Socio Bosque program that make them responsible to work for their conservation goals, to comply with the expectative of zero deforestation for twenty years. In return, these communities will receive an annual incentive of $99.977.30. Based on an investment plan carried out by the communities, these resources will help maintain the integrity of their territories and their natural resources, strengthen their organizational capa-bilities, improve health and education of the population, as well as stimulate productive activities that will enable them to get better markets and to improve life conditions.

    The Putumayo Tres Fronteras Project, coordinated with the technical people of the administration of the Cuyabeno Reserve and the Socio Bosque Program, supported the inclusion of the communities in this State program, by gathering information, arranging community meetings and elaborating an investment plan. There is also the compromise to support these communities to fulfill the investment plan and to plan future actions.
