Description: The Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) in Paraguay began with discussion and debate with three rural communities in eastern Paraguay and the lower Chaco region. All three communities face various challenges, such as the spread of industrial agriculture, and are actively engaged in restoring habitats and reversing environmental damage. Current successful initiatives include agroecological practices, saving seeds and restoring degraded soils and habitats, all of which could be expanded and replicated with the right support. This CCRI has focused on dialogue with women and young people in particular, as both groups are identified as the principle victims of pressures on the communities’ territories and cultures. They are also key actors in the recovery of communities’ knowledge, practices, conservation capacities and resilience.
