GEF Programming Framework: OP#4 Mountain Ecosystems;

OP#1 Arid and Semi-Arid Ecosystems


GEF Strategic Priorities BD1, BD2 and BD4
Summary: The Proyecto Paramo Andino will assist the participating countries (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela) to overcome the major barriers for conserving the biodiversity and safeguarding the hydrological and other environmental services and functions of the Andean Paramo. The project objective is to support the conservation and sustainable use of the biodiversity of the Paramo ecosystem. Specifically, the project will (i) implement examples of good practice in Paramo management at nine critical Paramo sites, (ii) support different governmental and non governmental levels to adopt key policies for Paramo conservation, (iii) increase the technical capacity of Paramo inhabitants and field practitioners to manage Paramo, (iv) increase awareness and information about Paramo among decision makers and the population in general, and (v) replicate best lessons of the project to other areas and scales at Andean level.
To achieve these outcomes, the project will develop and implement Participatory Management Plans (PMP) at nine sites (two trans-boundary sites) and develop and implement policy, legislative and regulatory frameworks. A training program directed to local stakeholders and an environmental education program directed to educational institutions of Paramo areas, will be executed. By means of a Paramo information mechanism and a communication and awareness raising campaign the project will communicate the importance of Paramo to the population of Paramo countries. Finally, the project’s impact will be increased to other areas and scales through the development and strengthening of formal and informal replication mechanisms. All components are supported by a participatory approach and applied investigation will provide necessary information for effective project execution.
