Challenge

This women-led initiative has its base in the Department of Chocó, in the Pacific Region of Colombia. Although the economic activities of these communities have traditionally relied on income from productive activities involving the sustainable use of forest and subsoil resources, in recent decades, some outside firms have begun to carry out extractive activities such as gold mines and forestry.

Solution

Sustainable production, collection and marketing of aromatic and medicinal plants and spices; certification process to ensure sustainability and marketability

Long-Term Impact

It is expected that, through this initiative, local communities will be able to find paths to sustainable development and achieve sustainable income generation.
