The specific objective of the project is "Strengthening environmental management initiatives and production systems that promote forest protection." The vast majority of impacts on forests, also in protected areas, occur because people living in the area need to generate income. Due to high levels of poverty, they are forced to choose between their subsistence and natural resources conservation. The project considers that this trade-off must be overcome and environmental protection actions must go hand in hand with the promotion of activities that allow economic development without affecting the environment. This will contribute to the general objective of improving the protection of the environment and life itself from human pressure. To achieve this objective, an intervention strategy has been identified, based on 4 elements: I) Local actors must be able to manage their territory and natural resources, to avoid actions that harm the ecosystem. The idea is that communities and authorities can establish mechanisms and plans for the use of natural resources and their protection, against climatic threats, fires, pollution, extractive initiatives, etc. II) The capacities of families to produce food will be strengthened. The proposed solution is based on agroforestry and agro-ecology activities, which promote synergistic integration between the different productive activities. This makes it possible to optimize the use of productive resources, soil and water, progressively eliminate the use of polluting chemicals, and have a diversified food production. All this contributes to strengthening food security of producers’ families and their resilience to climate change, and contingent situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic (during which communities can count exclusively on their local productive capacities). III) One of the traditional productions of the intervention areas will be strengthened, which is also one of the options most compatible with forest protection: beekeeping of common bees (Apis melifera) and of stingless bees (species of the genus Melipona). The activity will improve food security of families and will contribute to environmental functions, affected by climate change and pollution. IV) As a complement to strengthening primary honey production, marketing capacities (in terms of volume and diversification) of beehive products will be strengthened to generate income for families. This will reduce the possible pressure of the population on natural resources. It will also encourage the protection of the forest, because the source of income of the families will also depend on healthy conditions of the forest. The project target groups are the rural communities of the Municipalities of Monteagudo and Muyupampa (Department of Chuquisaca) and of Aiquile and Tiquipaya (Department of Cochabamba). A total of final beneficiaries of 4795 people, all chosen because they live in endangered forest areas. Most of them (Chuquisaca and Aiquile) have a tradition of beekeeping production. The project consortium is constituted by a group of Italian organizations, grouped in an ATS and other Ialian and local organizations. All of them have a high level of experience and specific expertise. They have been selected according to criteria of methodological compatibility and mutual complementation of competences. read more close
