The mission of Gaia Amazonas is to promote processes for autonomy and environmental governance, to guarantee the conservation of the northwest Amazon, from a cultural perspective and based on the indigenous vision of conservation. We seek to influence public policies for the region, to consolidate the effective use of indigenous peoples’ rights, to strengthen the capacity of indigenous people in constructing their own territorial ordering, to strengthen their articulation with national government, to recover their traditional knowledge and contribute to the global system of life through conservation strategies for biological and cultural diversity and climate change adaptation.
