Hauptinhalt der Seite


Workshop in Caquetá, Colombia

In the frame of the SLUS research project at ZALF (PB2 SUSLand), PhD researchers Luca Eufemia and Héctor C. Morales together with 5 master students (HU Berlin, University Bayreuth) went on a research mission to Colombia in November 2019.

The purpose was to comprehend governance models, drivers of conflict and deforestation in Caquetá (Colombian Amazon) and Cesar (Caribbean region). Interviews and two workshops were conducted, in Caquetá in cooperation with Universidad de la Amazonía, Red Caquetá Paz and Misión Verde Amazonía; in Cesar with International Centre for Tropical Agriculture and Universidad Popular del Cesar. Among the attendees were governmental bodies and representatives from farmers and indigenous communities. Participants discussed the common environmental challenges that Colombian people face after the peace agreement such as an increment in deforestation and land degradation.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
