OSINFOR develops these alternatives for compensating fines for native and peasant communities who are holders of forest permits, who have violations for not complying with forest and wildlife legislation. These trainings make it easier for communities to learn about these compensation mechanisms and understand the corresponding legislation.
The participatory workshop allowed them to learn how to prepare and sustain their Annual Execution Reports and the actions carried out by the Vigilance Committee in the conservation area. Attendees received information on how to develop activities established in their Conservation Plans, activities such as delimitation and installation of milestones, maintenance of boundaries, formation of surveillance and control brigades, as well as establishing a form of monitoring and evaluation.
The training is carried out within the framework of an inter-institutional cooperation agreement between CEDIA and OSINFOR, in order to strengthen the implementation and strengthening of the conservation plans of native and peasant communities in the Amazon.
