Lime. The Matsés National Reserve (RNM) has successfully completed another step towards the Application Phase of the IUCN Green List of Protected and Conserved Areas. The RNM is on its way to being nominated for the highest international standard in conservation. The Green List is a global certification of success in the management of protected areas that considers criteria related to: governance, design and planning of the protected area, management effectiveness and conservation results.
The candidacy process for the Green List is being led by the RNM leadership, with the mentoring of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WSC) and the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA).
This arduous work has made it possible to meet the 50 qualification criteria established by the IUCN and, in turn, to use the RNM as a model to guide the new protected natural areas in improving their management.
As part of the application process, Candy Vilela, who supports the RNM leadership from CEDIA, has published an article: "Participative and intercultural" on the PANORAMA platform; on the elaboration of the Master Plan of the Matsés National Reserve the challenge of elaborating an inclusive management instrument for the area.
