Fundación Gaia Amazonas

Gaia Amazonas is a Colombian NGO committed to the protection of biological and cultural diversity of the Amazon rainforest. Since 1990, we have worked with Indigenous communities of the Northwest Amazon for the recognition and implementation of their rights, territories and governance systems, as the most viable strategy for forest conservation. We believe there is an extraordinary potential to find innovative strategies to our planet’s most pressing social and environmental challenges through a dialogue between cultures. We have been supporting indigenous communities in defining their own social and cultural strategies based on their ancestral knowledge and in the context of today’s many challenges.
