    Mid-Term Evaluation of the project “Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, forests, soil and water to achieve Good Living/Sumac Kawsay in the Napo Province (FSP)”

    Ecuador has been recognized as one of the 17 megadiverse countries in the world. The Napo province presents 19 of the 91 ecosystems reported for Ecuador. With an integrated approach, the GEF-funded project “Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, forests, soil and water to achieve good living (Sumac Kawsay)” sought to overcome the many threats affecting biodiversity while reducing rural poverty. The project is contributing to the adoption of good management practices of forests, water, soil, crops and livestock by improving participation of the local Kichwa community, inclusion of its cosmovision in project activities and by addressing awareness raising and capacity building issues, also at institutional level. The project should continue its efforts to support the local government in giving a normative framework to conservation and sustainable production, institutionalize promotional instruments and implement value chain plans for cocoa, “naranjilla” and bio-trade products to generate an improvement in the living conditions and income of the beneficiary families.

    Final Evaluation of the Project: “Management of Chimborazo’s Natural Resources”
    GCP/ECU/080/GFF GEF ID: 3266
    2019
    Also available in:

    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.
