This country profile is part of a study entitled, "Myron, E., Fabiano, C., and Ahmed, H. International Outlook for Privately Protected Areas: Summary Report. International Land Conservation Network (a project of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy) - United Nations Development Programme, 2019.". The summary report provides an overview of the status of Privately Protected Areas in 30 countries throughout Latin America, Asia, the Pacific, and Sub-Saharan Africa. It summarizes the legal, policy, and institutional mechanisms used in these countries to establish and incentivize PPAs.
Ecuador es uno de los países más biodiversos del mundo y cuidar este gran tesoro de vida y sus bellos paisajes es una prioridad. Sin embargo; múltiples son las amenazas y los desafíos que ponen en peligro su integridad.
Al comienzo del proceso de 6IN, se planteó el reto a las Partes del Convenio sobre la Diversidad Biológica a duplicar la cantidad de mapas utilizados desde su 5IN a su 6IN. ¿Está en camino de enfrentar este desafío? ¡Tenemos buenas noticias para usted! Al utilizar el UN Biodiversity Lab y los conjuntos de datos globales disponibles, creamos 18 mapas preliminares de estado de biodiversidad para su país. Los datos dentro de estos mapas pueden ayudarlo a informar sobre indicadores clave relacionados con las Metas de Aichi 5, 11, 12, 14 y 15.
During the one-day day workshop on "Using National Reporting to Improve NBSAP Implementation and Development of the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework", at COP14 in Sharm-el-Sheik, Egypt, Ecuador took part in the World Cafe and presented its findings on Assessing the effectiveness of NBSAP implementation. Results are presented in this poster.

This women’s cooperative is providing livelihood options for the women and men of the island of Isabela in the Galápagos Islands. This small-scale enterprise is simultaneously decreasing pressures on overexploited local fisheries by adding value, rather than scale, to its production of smoked fish. Fishermen in the region have traditionally relied on declining populations of coastal sea cucumber, lobster, and shark for their livelihoods.
The remote communities of Ecuador’s inter-Andean valleys have long faced the twin challenges of food insecurity and environmental degradation. Malnutrition affects approximately 40 per cent of the region’s population, and farmers receive limited technological and economic support from formal institutions. The Union of Farmer and Indigenous Organizations of Cotacachi was founded to address these challenges and turn the relative abundance of rare native crop and fruit species to the advantage of farming communities.
The small fishing community of Puerto Cayo, located in the south-west of Manabi Province on Ecuador’s Pacific coast is the setting for an experiment in sustainable fishing methods that has endured since the 1970s. In partnership with government agencies, the Participatory Fisheries Management Board of Puerto Cayo has formalized attempts to better conserve coastal biodiversity and improve fishing livelihoods.
