Mission and Vision

Our mission: ANDES seeks to advance a rights-based approach to conservation and development through the implementation of Biocultural Territories, a model which has been successfully implemented in the Potato Park. The model creatively brings together Sumaq Causay, the ancient Andean principle and philosophy of well-being; modern science; and research methodologies to nurture resilient agrobiodiversity systems and foster endogenous development and poverty reduction

Our vision is to develop local capabilities and strategic responses to the effects of socioeconomic, cultural, ecologic processes as well as policies of globalization on local communities. Also, to protect indigenous resources, knowledge and the rights associated to these resources.

Our goals are:

a) To promote sumaq causay in all its dimensions through the defense, promotion and celebration of diversity in its different social, natural, biocultural and spiritual manifestations in terms of ideas, knowledge and other forms of expression.

b) At the global level, to establish and disseminate innovative models of communal development and territoriality that resolve environmental, social and cultural challenges that rural communities are facing.

c) To generate regional, national and international policies that emphasize local and marginalized voices in the promotion of biocultural conservation and areas related to sustainable development.

d) To create a global solidarity movement of organizations, actors and communities linked by South-South and South-North cooperation networks and collective discovery to develop alternatives and responses to global challenges.
