The Amazon Has a Voice in the NDP 2022-2026

The Amazon Has a Voice in the NDP 2022-2026, is an initiative that fostered participatory spaces in the 6 Amazonian states (Putumayo, Caquetá, Guaviare, Vaupes, Guainía, Amazonas) for the preparation of the National Development Plan, NDP 2022-2026. In response to the climate urgency, this initiative seeks to tune the NDP with the needs of the Colombian Amazon, that is, with the protection of its strategic ecosystems under production schemes compatible with its biome, a great opportunity that must be taken advantage of.

This initiative is led by Alisos in alliance with several organizations which have significant impact on the development of the Colombian Amazon, such as: Gaia Amazonas, the Foundation for Conservation and Sustainable Development, the Interreligious Initiative for Tropical Forests, Natura Foundation, GIZ, Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Gran Tierra Energy and National Parks- Cómo Vamos.

Within the framework of this initiative, a citizen participatory exercise was carried out with representative leaders of different interest groups from the region who were summoned to multisectoral dialogue scenarios that were created for the collection of inputs, formulation of proposals and the generation of agreements. This with the purpose that the integrated regional vision of sustainable Amazonian development, not the sum of departments, is represented in the government roadmap through its incorporation and adoption in the National Development Plan 2022-2026.
