The project seeks to contribute to the exercise of the rights of indigenous peoples of the Amazon Region in these three countries, for the management of natural resources and sustainable development.

CARE will strengthen the participation and influence of Amazonian indigenous organizations in decision-making on public policies related to natural resource management at the local, national and regional levels, by September 2012.

Activities include: development and implementation of a training program (national and regional) for indigenous leaders and members of indigenous organizations in technical subjects; construction and strengthening of consensus-building channels between indigenous organizations and other key stakeholders; development and strengthening of transnational mechanisms for communication and learning exchange among indigenous organizations of the Amazon region and of a strategy to disseminate information and raise public awareness, with a view to building alliances/coalitions and concerted agendas; and, technical assistance in developing and managing proposals to improve policies and norms of the intervention countries and in developing policy guidelines and agendas of regional entities.
