NCI Helping to Promote Biodiversity Conservation and Environmental Goods & Services Industry in Ecuador
|Ensuring a balanced dynamic between society, State and market, in harmony with nature
With over a decade of experience in environmental conservation and sustainable development, NCI is helping to convert Ecuador into a leading exporter of environmental goods and services through the promotion of a regional and national training program sponsored by Ecuador’s National Secretary of Planning and Development. The program, “Conservation of ecosystems, generation of bio-knowledge, and development of industry based on environmental goods and services,” suggests a shift in focus towards a new model of internal development. This new paradigm will involve the diversification of goods, markets and services as part of a plan to turn the country into an authority on biological knowledge and tourism services, and to ensure a balanced dynamic between society, State, and market, in harmony with nature. Ecotourism ventures, carbon sequestration programs, and the training of high-level professionals in the area of biodiversity conservation are just some examples of the many possibilities that this program could set in motion. The program’s multifaceted development approach will seek to make Ecuador a benchmark country for biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of natural wealth in order to guarantee the quality of life for all its inhabitants and future generations.
