The Páramo de Santurbán, a biodiversity hotspot and important water source for the department of Santander, is threatened by encroachment of extractive industries. Fundación Mujer y Futuro (FMF) is partnering with Corporación Buen Ambiente (Corambiente) to educate grassroots women leaders about the links between women’s well-being, the environment and a culture of peace. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Colombia. FMF and Corambiente’s activities bolster efforts to counteract environmental degradation and protect the natural resources that these communities depend on. This grant is part of a broader initiative to build a just and lasting peace in Colombia.
