We work to contribute to water security in the territories, our strategy starts from the protection of water from the mountains to the sea. We focused our intervention on the Río Claro and Río Cartama basins in Antioquia, Río Saldaña in Tolima and the Canal del Dique in Sucre, achieving the conservation of 3,910 hectares.

How do we do it?

 

We contribute to the sustainable development and quality of life of the communities of the Río Claro basin, through actions of conservation, restoration and sustainable production. The area of ​​influence of this project is between the municipalities of Sonsón, San Francisco, Puerto Triunfo and San Luis in Antioquia, achieving the conservation of 1,239 hectares.

 

We work for the protection and restoration of the Río Saldaña basin that supplies approximately 46% of the inhabitants of Tolima through conservation and sustainable production strategies, strengthening community capacities to promote the use of alternative solutions for access to water, sanitation and sustainable use of water resources. At this time, we have achieved the conservation of 2,671 hectares.

 

We contribute to the design, implementation and promotion of actions of conservation, restoration and ecological regeneration under the integral management of water basins, contributing to the improvement of plant covers and ecosystem connectivity in the province of Cartama.

We protect and restore mangrove ecosystems, recognizing their importance for the conservation of biodiversity, the capture of blue carbon and the quality of life of the inhabitants of the Canal del Dique in Sucre. At this time, more than 28 hectares of mangrove have been restored.

 

We protect the habitat of the Andean bear, considered the guardian of water, working to avoid conflict between the bear and peasant communities, developing actions to take care of their environment through the conservation of the forest area, ecological restoration, the development of projects sustainable production and environmental education processes. To date, thanks to the program, more than 2,500 hectares have been protected through which the bear now roams for freedom.

The positive transformation of the territories contributes to the improvement of the quality of life of the communities where we are present, adding wills around education, culture and corporate volunteering.
