Colombia’s University of the Amazon and ACT Present Certificate Course to Indigenous Communities of the Department of Caquetá

Posted in

In November 2015, Colombia’s University of the Amazon (Universidad de la Amazonia), in partnership with ACT, held a certificate course for indigenous representatives on the development of self-administered studies and surveys for the proper land use zoning and administration of indigenous territories in the Colombian Amazon. The participants were 14 local promoters and leaders of communities of the department (state) of Caquetá’s largest municipality, Solano. Subjects included agricultural production, gender equity, and the analysis of indigenous experiences that support local and regional development.

Since 2011, ACT has been working with both indigenous and small farmer communities in Solano to increase environmentally friendly livelihood opportunities and to achieve conservation commitments with all stakeholders.

For the university’s release on this groundbreaking course, see: http://www.udla.edu.co/v10/index.php/servicios-de-informacion/noticias-y-eventos/126-comunidad/2657-universidad-de-la-amazonia-ofrece-diplomado-a-comunidades-indigenas-del-caqueta.html

The Amazon Conservation Team partners with indigenous and other local communities to protect tropical forests and strengthen traditional culture.
