North of Chile: Forests in Tarapacá and Arica
CONAF is an autonomous institution of the Chilean State, originally created as a private law corporation, dependent on the Chilean Ministry of Agriculture, in charge of administering Chilean forest policy, promoting the development of the sector, fighting wildfires and managing protected areas such as national parks and national reserves. In this particular case, CONAF works on an environmental initiative.
Acción Andina is a Latin-American led, large-scale, native forest landscape restoration initiative, which aims to protect and restore one million hectares of threatened high Andean, Polylepis forest ecosystems in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela over the next 25 years.
