Nia Tero will strengthen and expand Indigenous-led initiatives to safeguard an additional 4.2 million hectares of Indigenous territories in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Beyond contributing to Indigenous peoples’ guardianship of thriving forest landscapes, Nia Tero will work to ensure that Indigenous peoples’ rights to their territories and resources are fully upheld in the implementation of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, including the recognition of their customary lands and governance systems.
