By promoting climate-smart landscapes, the Working Landscapes programme will contribute to climate change mitigation, adaptation, improved livelihoods and environmental integrity, which are crucial to achieving the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Forests and trees in well-managed landscapes have the potential to contribute significantly to climate change mitigation and adaptation, while supporting people’s livelihoods and sustaining agricultural value chains.
The "Forests for a Just Future" programme of the Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA) will contribute to the protection of tropical forests and the people who directly depend on those forests. With partner organisations in Africa, South East Asia and South America the GLA works to govern tropical forests in a sustainable and inclusive way.
This project promotes the inter-generational transmission of knowledge and the exploration of the sense of belonging to the territory and the local culture through artistic projects proposed by the young indigenous men and women living in the AIPEA (Association of Indigenous Authorities of Pedrera, Amazonas) region.
The dry tropical forest in the Caribbean region is one of the most scarce and threatened ecosystems in Colombia. In the past years, many strategies have attempted its restoration and conservation. Today, TBI Colombia is working on how to approach the threats and the proper management of this ecosystem in the local educational system.
Recent legislation in Colombia based on the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage has made the rescue of intangible cultural expressions a priority in the country. Safeguarding cultural manifestations implies an integral understanding of communities, territories and the interaction between cultural agents. TBI Colombia’s experience with local communities has been key in the implementation of this policy with the Ministry of Culture.
