Organizing around the care of a watershed in Ecuador
CECCA (Centro de Educación y Capacitación Campesina) is assisting the communities of Guayán, Cachiyacu and Calvario Alto (Paute, Cuenca) through joint analyses, learning and planning. With the help of the PKF grant, the communities will be supported to strengthen their formal organizations and interaction with other actors through models of collaborative governance for the natural resources. They will also be empowered to take action about their natural resources at various levels in a local micro watershed, including for the reforestation of degraded areas with native species. This is a pilot initiative for a larger participatory management project concerning the entire watershed of the Cutilcay river.
