    Management Response to the Final Evaluation of the Project: “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources”

    The ecosystem aimed to conserve and sustainably manage by the GEF-funded project “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources" is the “páramo” which offers important environmental services such as the production of water, the capture of CO2 and great variety of native crops preserved thanks to the traditional knowledge of indigenous communities. The project's achievements were significant in the Chimborazo province: raising environmental awareness on the conservation of water resources, creation of regulations to implement compensation mechanisms for environmental services in order to improve the governance of natural resources, the approval of ordinances at provincial and cantonal level to protect biodiversity, storage and optimization of the use of irrigation water by creating committees of irrigators and water for human consumption. Future projects should continue supporting national and local governments in conserving endemic biodiversity (including agrobiodiversity) and implementing an information system on the state of biodiversity in the Chimborazo Reserve.

    Final evaluation of the project “Mainstreaming the use and conservation of agrobiodiversity in public policy through integrated strategies and in situ implementation in four Andean Highlands provinces”

    Ecuador has been recognized as one of the 17 megadiverse countries in the world. It present a great variety of native crops preserved thanks to traditional agricultural practices of indigenous communities. The GEF-funded project “Integrate the use and conservation of agro-biodiversity in public policies” sought to overcome the many threats affecting biodiversity while reducing rural poverty. The project contributed to enhance food security and the livelihoods of family farmers by supporting the sustainable use of local crops and developing short marketing circuits. The project also supported the integration of agrobiodiversity in the National Strategy for Biodiversity and in the Development and Land Management Plans at provincial level. It was instrumental to the formulation of the Agrobiodiversity and Seeds Law, the development of a database of 546 native seeds and to the establishment of Bio-knowledge and Agricultural Development Centers. Future projects should continue supporting national and local governments in regulating and implementing the Agrobiodiversity and Seeds Law, in establishing the National Agrarian Authority and creating a niche in the national and international market for native crops.

    El ecosistema que el proyecto financiado por el FMAM "Manejo de recursos naturales en Chimborazo" buscaba conservar y gestionar de manera sostenible es el "páramo", que ofrece importantes servicios ambientales como la producción de agua, la captura de CO2, una gran variedad de cultivos nativos conservados gracias al conocimiento tradicional de las comunidades indígenas. Los resultados del proyecto en la provincia de Chimborazo fueron significativos: sensibilización ambiental sobre la conservación de los recursos hídricos, creación de regulaciones para implementar mecanismos de compensación para los servicios ambientales con el fin de mejorar la gobernanza de los recursos naturales, la aprobación de ordenanzas para proteger la biodiversidad a nivel provincial y cantonal, el almacenamiento y la optimización del uso del agua de riego mediante la creación de comités de irrigadores. Proyectos futuros deberían continuar apoyando a los gobiernos nacionales y locales para conservar la biodiversidad endémica (incluida la biodiversidad agrícola) y en la implementación de un sistema de información sobre el estado de la biodiversidad en la Reserva Chimborazo.
