Challenge

The recently created Marine and Coastal Area for Indigenous People (MCAIP) in Caulin, Chile, aims to provide their Huilliche-Lafkenche communities with the tools to fight important threats to their environment, livelihoods and cultural identities, such as pollution, overfishing and industrial development. However, the lack of financial resources in these communities jeopardizes their capacity to effectively implement the management and conservation actions elaborated for the MCAIP.

Solution

This project will provide resources and capacity-building to nearly 300 indigenous people in the Caulin MCAIP, with a strong emphasis on women and the youth, in three key areas: (1) Conservation and sustainable management of environments, species and natural resources; (2) Education and traditional knowledge transfer; (3) Community-based sustainable ecotourism. All of these areas have been acknowledge by the communities as central to sustain their livelihoods and cultural identity.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide resources and capacities to nearly 300 Huilliche-Lafkenche people from the coastal community of Caulin to effectively implement the actions developed for their MCAIP, which will help them to become strong stewards of their environments and natural resources, strengthen their cultural identities and boost sustainable livelihoods for them and coming generations.
