Fondo Patrimonio Natural of Colombia (Patrimonio Natural)
The Fondo de Patrimonio Natural was born in 2005, as a non-profit foundation, with mixed participation, aimed at the conservation of the natural areas of Colombia.
The Fund invests strategically in the conservation and protection of the natural heritage and services to the ecosystems they provide (water, air, food, biodiversity of flora and fauna and landscapes, among others) For this, designs and implements financial mechanisms, executes and administers programs and projects based on safeguarding the natural, cultural and ethnic landscape of their country.
They manage resources to support initiatives around the conservation, sustainable use and improvement of the quality of life of the communities in the strategic ecosystems and protected areas of the country.
They work in the design of effective projects and with adequate funding schemes that strengthen the partner organizations and guarantee conservation results, supported by technical proposals that contribute to the decision making on environmental and sectoral policies.
They execute and manage resources so that they arrive in an effective, efficient and timely manner in the territories. They propose execution and institutional articulation schemes that seek to achieve sustainable impacts and design mechanisms and financial incentives to promote the sustainability of actions in the field.
Their experience is consolidated as a source of information and strategic knowledge to strengthen new spaces for participation and debate in the formulation and management of public policy and, of course, in the qualification of the capacities of the actors that are part of the initiatives and developed projects.
Their mission is to promote strategic investments in and with businesses, government and society for the conservation of the country's natural areas and the services they provide; contributing at the same time to the improvement of the quality of life and the development of capacities of the local communities.
The Fund is the leading institution in strategic investments for the conservation of the natural heritage of Colombians, financially consolidated, with a transparent governance system and responds effectively to the country's conservation and financing objectives.See more
