LEVERAGING GTE’S SOCIAL EXPERTISE
TO SUPPORT LOCAL INITIATIVES
By leveraging a small investment of $115,000 USD for project planning, Gran Tierra helped enable the Putumayo Department access $26 million USD of royalty funds. The program brings in expertise to help local government stakeholders such as the Governor’s Office of Putumayo and the Mayor’s Office of Puerto Asís, design and propose high-impact projects that qualify for funding through the national royalty fund.
                                                  Participating in “Chocoshow”
Ten farmers and ex-combatants participating in the cocoa nursery program in Puerto Asís and Uribe were invited by Gran Tierra to participate in “Chocoshow,” an international cocoa industry fair held in Bogotá that featured more than 80 exhibitors. The fair helped the new cocoa farmers see the possibilities created by their cultivation of this crop.
“Our desire is to keep on contributing to the peacebuilding process. Through this program and Chocoshow I learned that we can produce very good chocolate with the proper techniques. Also key to making this work on a larger scale is improving infrastructure like roads to help with access to markets.”
