Equator Initiative Case Study - The Captaincy of the Upper and Lower Izozog (CABI)

The Captaincy of the Upper and Lower Izozog (Capitania del Alto y Bajo Izozog - CABI) represents more than 10,000 members of Bolivia’s Izoceño-Guaraní people in a landmark co-management agreement in the country’s Gran Chaco region. With technical support from the Wildlife Conservation Society, CABI negotiated with the Bolivian government for establishment of the 3.4 million-hectare Kaa-Iya del Gran Chaco National Park and Integrated Management Natural Area, one of the largest national parks in South America.
