Voices: stories attesting to sustainable production transformation in the Amazon

VOCES: testimonios de transformación productiva sostenible en la Amazonia

In its final stage, the Sustainable Amazonian Landscapes project developed a platform called Voices, where farmers and decision-makers talk about their experience with the project.

The Sustainable Amazonian Landscapes project (SAL) has focused efforts on disseminating the information generated in four years since its launch. Our main goal has been to provide national environmental officers and local farmers in Colombia and Peru with research-based evidence about the contribution of sustainable land-use alternatives to improve capacity for climate change mitigation and adaptation by improving ecosystem services and socioeconomic benefits for farmers.

All of the information generated by the project was disseminated in various workshops held in the cities of Yurimaguas and Lima in Peru, and Florencia and Bogota in Colombia. The workshops brought together researchers, technical advisors and national and local authorities.

With the aim of broadening the reach of the project’s dissemination efforts, a platform called Voices was rolled out, including statements by different actors attesting to their experience as farmers and researchers involved in the project, and perceptions by public policy- and decision-makers on our achievements.

We encourage you to visit and share the Voices platform widely to join the increasing number of supporters for a sustainable Amazon.

The Sustainable Amazonian Landscapes project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), based on a decision made by the German Bundestag, supports the project, which is led by CIAT’s Agroecosystems and Sustainable Landscapes research area and jointly implemented with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK),CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE)CIPAV Foundation, Amazonian Institute of Scientific Research (SINCHI), Universidad de la Amazonía, Peruvian Amazon Research Institute (IIAP), and National Agrarian University-La Molina (VLIR-UNALM).
