In order to articulate inter-institutional actions aimed at strengthening the conservation strategies of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a round table was held in which the directors of the Regional Autonomous Corporations of La Guajira and Cesar participated, Samuel Lanao Robles and Jorge Fernandez Ospino, respectively; and the coordinator of Environmental Management of Corpamag, Luis Sepulveda Diaz.
During the event, convened by Corpoguajira, it was agreed to implement an alliance between the environmental authorities, the indigenous peoples that inhabit this important ecoregion and entities of the national order.
“We are promoting this space that becomes a historical landmark, through which we will work together for the environmental preservation of the Sierra Nevada, between the CARs that share their jurisdiction, the indigenous councils, National Parks and the Regional System of Protected Areas. We must take advantage of the political situation of the new government and the formulation of a new development plan; reason for which a document will be prepared that collects the actions to be executed in order to manage the necessary resources for that purpose”, explained Lanao Robles.
In addition, indicated that they will work from the planning instruments of each entity, which will have the contributions and ancestral vision of the indigenous communities. Meanwhile, Jorge Fernandez, Director of Corpocesar, He specified that “this initiative has come at a very opportune moment.. It was necessary for the three Corporations to discuss these actions. We share ecosystems, the same problem and many species of fauna and flora. The important thing now is to work hand in hand for a common good, as is the protection of our mountains.
A similar exercise will be held next week in Santa Marta, to align the components and initiatives of the actions that will be presented to the National Government.
Finally, the environmental authorities also promised to carry out an exchange of knowledge and experiences to strengthen these works of planning and preservation of the highest coastal mountain in the world.
