Abstract

Consortium prioritized supply chains that offer the greatest potential for generating measurable results within a framework of performance-based payments for reducing deforestation in Caquetá and Guaviare based on criteria such as: potential for slowing deforestation, supporting policies and planning, supply and demand.

As the predominant production system, cattle ranching systems are in need of programs that improve production practices, favor alliances with the private sector, and create the appropriate conditions for this system to be consolidated in areas where it is already established and prevent its expansion into areas of low and medium rates of deforestation. Natural rubber, cacao and coffee supply chains represent an alternative in promoting sustainable production systems and other production alternatives to halt the expansion of the agriculture frontier. Promotion of agroforestry arrangements would establish buffer zones between cattle ranching and forest areas.
