Fundacion Chankuap Recursos para el Futuro

Founded in the Achuar territory, the foundation was formed to provide more sustainability and community development.


Crops are cultivated on small areas of land, using parameters for organic agriculture, and with no monocultures. Furthermore, management plans are implemented for each wild-harvested species to ensure its sustainable use. The foundation helped to conduct community plans of territorial systems, where the communities themselves require their people to respect certain rules intended to protect their territory, forest, animals, water, etc.
