Ejecutor de Contrato de Administración Tuntanain (ECA Tuntanain)

In the Amazonas Department of Peru, Ejecutor de Contrato de Administración Tuntanain (ECA Tuntanain, Executor of the Administrative Contract of Tuntanain) has created a powerful collaboration with the National Service of Protected Areas (SERNANP) to co-manage 94,967 hectares of forest. Bringing together 23 indigenous communities within the Tuntanain Communal Reserve, the group’s primary aim is to reduce vulnerability to climate change through climate change mitigation, sustainable production, and inclusive governance. Through these activities, ECA Tuntanain has increased income for local communities by 160 percent, protected the headwaters of three rivers essential for water security, reduced food insecurity, and created an inclusive governance plan for territorial conservation and development to ensure long-term sustainability. The protection of a large area of intact forest contributes significantly to the mitigation of climate change.
