Within the framework of the implementation of life plans, natural resource management plans are drawn up and implemented. The proposed management must consider the three aspects of sustainable development: economic, social and biological. This means that in addition to the market guarantee and biological sustainability, it must be taken into consideration that the use of these resources is not a generator of conflict and inequality in the communities.
The basic instrument to generate economic alternatives based on the use of natural resources is the Community Life Plan. CEDIA has accompanied dozens of communities in these undertakings, ranging from management initiatives for the recovery of species of regular consumption, farms, integral to contribute to food security and fisheries management; to commercial tourism activities such as Pusharo Lodge and the Tambos Matsés.
