The programme engaged a large variety of stakeholders from grassroots level to the Ministries of Environment and civil society in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru to find solutions on how to better conserve and use sustainably the Amazonian biodiversity.
Indufor is currently carrying out the final evaluation of the Biodiversity Programme for the Amazon Region of the Andean Community – BioCAN. It is a 6,275 MEUR programme funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and implemented by the General Secretariat of the Andean Community (SGCAN) with the Regional Coordination Unit at the SGCAN in Lima, Peru, and National Coordination Units at the Ministries of Environment of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.
The overall objective of this final evaluation is to provide analytical observations about what worked in the implementation phase of BioCAN, which took place from mid-2010 until the end of 2013. The evaluation will be carrying out a contribution analysis, a method that allows drawing robust conclusions on the contribution of BioCAN to the observed results and impacts.
Indufor also carried out the mid-term evaluation of BioCAN in 2012.
