Summary
The project “Sustainable forest management in the Chimbo River basin” seeks to ensure the conservation of the forest resources and agroforestry systems in the area by strengthening the economic inclusion of vulnerable groups, particularly women, through the sustainable management of tropical forests located between 350 and 1200 m.a.s.l. From a political and administrative viewpoint, this area extends over two provinces and three cantons (Bucay, Cumandá and Pallatanga), which are organized as a collective community area within Ecuador’s planning Zone 5 as defined by SENPLADES. It is expected that by the end of the two-year implementation period, the following outputs will be produced: a) a diagnostic study of agro-eco-forestry systems in farms, socio-economic conditions and gender inequalities within the collective community area; b) 3 nurseries managed by women for the production of timber and non-timber native species in the collective community area; c) a production and marketing plan for seasonal products supported by the collective community to strengthen local male and female producers; d) an awareness and training plan on the benefits of agro-eco-forestry systems, highlighting the contribution of women; e) Land-Use Management and Development Plans (PDOTs) and sectoral plans, including the information and conservation strategies for forest resources and agro-eco-forestry systems developed by the project so as to contribute to ITTO´s objectives and priorities and to Ecuador’s National Plan for Good Living (PNVB) 2013-2017.
