Platform of Information and Dialogue for the Colombian Amazon

Platform of Information and Dialogue for the Colombian Amazon

Climate Focus, together with Fundacion Natura, Red Caquetá Paz and CINDAP, has developed and recently launched a Platform of Information and Dialogue for the Colombian Amazon (PID). The PID promotes cooperation, dialogue and knowledge sharing between international, national, regional and local actors that enhance sustainable development in the region. The PID addresses the lack of communication between the region and the central instances of government, and enhances coordination of actors for public policy implementation. The project was started in May 2016 and is closely aligned with the Colombian Government's initiative for the Amazon Region, 'Visión Amazonía', a regional strategy seeking to reduce deforestation in the Colombian Amazon by 2020. The PID provides a new channel of communication for all actors in the region, opens opportunities for partnerships, agreements, and shares knowledge and experience. Project activities include mapping all relevant stakeholders and its activities in the region, developing a webpage, and organizing workshops and multi-stakeholder meetings.
