The workshop in January had the participation of over 50 representatives of 7 Achuar communities, key Achuar political leaders, and other indigenous stakeholders. Over the 3-day workshop important issues were discussed, including the selection of the new community tourism board in charge of overseeing the operations of Kapawi Ecolodge.
The workshop also helped develop an annual action plan to kickstart a renovation and rejuvenation of Kapawi Ecolodge, a necessary endeavor after two decades of successful operation.
Pachamama Alliance will continue supporting these important community events to strengthen the alliance with the Achuar nation while fostering continuous community coordination and collaboration. More news will come in the following weeks.
