Project Description

According to the bank, the project will implement an Integrated Landscape Management (ILM) approach in two priority landscapes in the Orinoquia. This approach will focus on promoting land-use planning that adequately reflects biodiversity and ecosystem services at the landscape level, in strengthening the region's protected areas and in promoting economic activities in production areas that guarantee conservation of critical biodiversity and ecosystem services. To this end, the project will i) generate information on biodiversity and critical ecosystems at appropriate scale, ii) finance activities required to guarantee the inclusion of this information into territorial and sectoral planning processes (especially the agricultural sector), iii) strengthen management of protected areas and support the declaration of new ones, iv) promote biodiversity friendly economic activities in production-conservation landscapes and v) contribute to the development of financial instruments that incentivize the adoption of these economic activities.
