A new video was released last week on the innovative efforts within Pastaza, Ecuador to protect and conserve five million hectares of Ecuadorian rainforest through the implementation of a sustainable development plan in collaboration with the indigenous peoples who live there. This strategy promotes an ancestral system of agroforestry cultivation, the chakra. In 2023, the United Nations declared this ancient system a World Agricultural Heritage Site.
