Amazonian forests are home to a great diversity of cultures and natural and numerous households in rural communities depend directly on the extraction of Non-Timber Forest Resources (NTFR). In the department of Pando in the Northern Bolivia the brazil nut – an indigenous Amazon fruit – alone constitutes the primary source of income for rural households and the economy of the region. However, a drastic fall in global market prices of brazil nut combined with a growing climate variability threats the household economy of local communities, showing their vulnerability due to dependence on a single resource. With the following Development Objective to guide the project will meet the above challenge and contribute to livelihood improvement by: “Strengthening climate change adaptation in Bolivian Amazon forest communities based on diversification of livelihoods linked to the NTFRs”.
