The Galilea Forest Conservation REDD+ Project Amé, has the main objective to preserve the region's native forests by reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions caused by deforestation and degradation, also preserving and protecting local biodiversity through inter-institutional programs and initiatives, the development of activities that promote CO2 emissions reduction, execution of social strategies with the purpose of maintaining these forests in a state of conservation. From a biophysical perspective, the region where the project is located (Department of Tolima) characterizes itself by having a high diversity of fauna and flora distributed in different types of ecosystems, as well as a large supply of water resources. In addition these forests are part of the priority areas for conservation in the Andean and Amazonian region, since they are located in the biological corridor that connects the Andean and High Andean forests with the Sumapaz Paramo, National Natural Park and the Galilea Forest Regional Natural Park. It is the last relict of primary forest in eastern Tolima which contains the river Río Negro, main source of the Hidro Prado dam that generates and supplies clean energy to most of the local communities.
