December 2019. Have passed close to five years since the adoption of the global goals to ensure the social and economic growth of populations around the world, looking for the harmonisation with the ecological dynamics and the environmental need that day-to-day, with a greater sense of urgency, in the planet express. 17 the objectives were proposed, through the eyes of multidisciplinary and integrated, broken down into 169 targets that expected to the year 2030, reduce poverty, improve living conditions, promote equity and access of the communities to the satisfaction of their needs and the protection of their fundamental rights.
In the country, the realization of the goals progresses at a slow pace, requires the state's commitment both in the formulation of public policies adapted to local realities, as in the destination budget of the territorial bodies, in the same way, you demand the participation of the private sector in delivering solutions or services that tend for the revitalization of the process.
BIOFIX has been working for some years in the consolidation of projects of forest conservation in the form of REDD+ in ethnic communities in the departments of Chocó, Valle del Cauca, Vichada, Guainía, and Guaviare; the populations under its territorial reality, they perform an identification of priority needs, which in turn allow you to establish lines of action across all of the territories, as well as specific lines aimed to fulfill their Plans of Ethno-development, or the projection of development joint.
Lines that, from its formulation include the alignment with the majority of the SDGS, on the basis that the interventions in an area contribute to the outcome of another, pointing to the objectives (1) the End of poverty, (2) zero Hunger, and (12) Production and consumption are responsible, when you run actions aimed at the production of native foods and the chain is necessary to ensure the food security of the populations and the opening of opportunities in various business green agrosilvopastoriles, ecotourism and harvesting of non-timber forest resources, with the purpose of obtaining an economic benefit to support the family support and that does not put at risk the availability and quality of the resources they have available long-term.
In regard to the objective (4) quality Education, it aims to promote actions aimed to improve the conditions in which children and young people have access to the training school and were made partakers of the process of construction of identity, cultural appropriation of the knowledge and ancestral traditions, in the same way, that ensures access to processes of literacy and education for the population in the productive age who are on track to generate synergy within the community and economic alternatives diverse.
It is worth noting the contribution to the objective (5) gender Equalityto include within the key activities of strengthening governance and productivity, the strengthening of the capacities of leadership, participation, partnership, empowerment and entrepreneurship of women, indigenous and afro to the interior of their communities, referred to as alternate perspective of development.
Similarly, it cooperates with the objectives (3) Health and well-being, (6) clean Water and sanitation, and (7) Energy affordable and clean energy, to provide the solutions for the improvement and provision of housing, community facilities and infrastructure of public services and appropriate technologies in renewable energy, eco-efficiency in the cooking, supply of safe drinking water and prioritize programmes of prevention and promotion of health harmonized with the medicine ancestral peoples.
At the same time, it should be noted that since the conception of the project is based on the premise that the synergies created between the public institutions, community-based organizations and other links land is needed to achieve concrete progress in the implementation, for which the objective (17) Partnerships in order to achieve the objectives, cannot be overlooked if you are looking for the strengthening of the process.
Finally, the confluence of the actions described above with the activities of reforestation participatory in degraded areas and ecological importance along with the control measures and community-based monitoring of deforestation, degradation and loss of biodiversity, to contribute to the objectives 13) climate Action and (15) Life of terrestrial ecosystems, to ensure the conservation and enhancement of the natural reservoirs of carbon that ultimately, are the ones who ensure the financial sustainability of these types of conservation projects and to decrease the vulnerability that possess ecosystems and communities under the scenarios of climate change estimates.
As for example, the implementation of projects of stoves eco-efficient not only mitigate the deforestation caused by the use of scattered wood, but also on issues of public health improves the quality of air and therefore, the quality of life of the persons who will carry out the work in the kitchen, usually women.
