Protected Areas and Environmental Impact

Many of the biodiversity threats in the NAEC are driven by economic forces and political decisions made at different levels. In order to develop sustainable solutions to a number of conservation problems in the Northern Andes, it is necessary to engage decision-makers and economic sectors in the identification of measures to check or reduce the impact of development processes. Some of the actions identified by the NAE program are:
  • Development of policies to check and/or minimize the biophysical and socioeconomic impacts of infrastructure development.
  • Development of policies to check and/or minimize the biophysical and socioeconomic impacts of oil exploitation and mining.
  • Strengthening and/or establishing agreements with sectors involved to minimize the negative impacts of development processes.
