Past projects

From 2002 until 2013 Putumayo vzw was cooperating with its Peruvian sister organisation, aiming to strengthen the organization of indigenous federations. This culminated in an extraordinary result: in 2013, after many years of silent struggle, the Zona Reservada Guëppí was categorized as nature reserve, and Petrobras decided to stop looking for oil in that area.

Thanks to the many years of working with indigenous communities, Putumayo vzw has acquired a strong expertise and valuable experience in this field.
