Respect, diversity, knowledge and constructions:

The basis, the foundation, of Quimilero Project is respect for diversity. Quimilero Project acknowledges that scientific knowledge is as valid as other forms of knowledge, and it is through collaboration and the integration of diverse wisdom that we can address the global environmental and climate crisis.

Horizontality, transparency and return of results:

In order to engage with historically marginalized populations whose fundamental rights are often violated, the professionals and technicians of Quimilero Project work collaboratively with local communities in a horizontal manner. They respect the timing and needs of those who inhabit these territories. Transparency is a crucial aspect of their approach, as they inform the communities about the objectives and methods of each initiative. Furthermore, they ensure compliance with consultation procedures outlined by national and international regulations, such as the ILO 169 convention. Lastly, Quimilero Project strives to give back to the local population by sharing the knowledge gained from these and other initiatives.

Scientific rigor:

When conducting scientific research, rigor is of utmost importance, and the Quimilero Project employs carefully planned sampling designs and statistical analyses to address the research questions at hand.

Strengthening and local leadership:

Since the Quimilero Project operates within forest areas inhabited by local communities, its conservation efforts aim to empower and support these communities, particularly the younger generation. The objective is for local people to take the lead in future conservation initiatives. Simultaneously, all actions undertaken by the Quimilero Project strive to promote social and environmental justice within the local context and create opportunities for conservation. This approach is essential for the region to achieve genuine and sustainable development.
