The Chocó-Darién region, extending from Eastern Panama to the Colombian Pacific coast, is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world covering an area of over 13,000km2. Implemented with indigenous community groups, the project aims to prevent deforestation across 13,000 hectares through a combination of forest protection and sustainable development activities. Working with 2,000 people across 33 communities, the project reduces community dependence on unsustainable timber extraction and unsustainable agricultural practices such as cattle ranching, by building governance capacity and developing sustainable production methods.
