Challenge

The lack of active participation on the implementation of new business as well as technologies has economical, organizational and environmental consequences; reducing the possibilities to improve the productive activities and make them more sustainable and friendly with the forest. In some cases, the absence of new technologies force to the community members to maintain obsolete technologies that can cause serious damages to the people and to the ecosystem.

Solution

The use of sustainable technologies can transform the state of natural resource management within the region and make great strides toward improving livelihoods and supporting the economic independence for the local communities. While also ensuring long-term conservation activities in one of the most bio-diverse places on Earth. Actions to develop the continues participation of the indigenous people in the process of implementation of these technologies are needed to have a success.

Long-Term Impact

The local participation during the entire process (improving the nut harvesting process- add value with the new technology- local organization and commercialization) increased the sense of ownership in the participants. Today the aim is that the women would carry the project controlling the quality of the production, the correct use of the machines and ensuring the fair distribution of the earnings.
