Resume:

To reduce the impact of deforestation in the Chiquitano Dry Forest (CDF) region in the Eastern Bolivia the project focuses on contributing to the protection and sustainable management of forests in the indigenous territory TIOC CIBAPA - Central Indígena del Bajo Paraguá, by involving indigenous people and settlers in forest fires prevention and mitigation while providing indigenous people with opportunities for increasing incomes through nature based IGAs and empower them to enforce their indigenous territorial rights. Indigenous communities in the CDF-region are key to promoting forest protection in a fragmented landscape and have acquired a function as ‘Safe Havens’ in an eco-region where most forests are cleared to create space for agriculture and livestock production, new settlements and logging concessions. The impact objective is to include the TIOC in a corridor of connectivity as strategic ‘steppingstone’ between three protected areas in the Northern Chiquitania.
