Magdalena River Basin Project

Donor: Anonymous and GNB Sudameris
Local Ally: The Nature Conservancy
Beneficiaries: 5,000 individuals
Location: Department of Magdalena

This initiative convenes a wide array of stakeholders to develop the first-ever, basin-wide sustainable model for the management of the Magdalena River. The goal was to balance production, flood control, and conservation needs, as well as improve the livelihoods of small and medium scale farmers in the Magdalena River basin. This was achieved by providing them with strategies to raise cattle in ways that lessen the impact on nature while improving their productivity.
