Founded in 1999, the Fundación para la Sobrevivencia del Pueblo Cofán (Cofan Survival Fund) is based in Quito, Ecuador, and is dedicated to the survival of the Cofán, who are among the oldest surviving indigenous cultures in the Ecuadorian Amazon. With Cofán leadership, the organization is committed to biodiversity conservation and research, protecting ancestral territory and its natural resources, developing environmentally sound income alternatives and educating the next generation.
Cofan Survival Fund combines government alliances, extensive fieldwork, on-the ground management and control, and community-based conservation projects to mobilize resources and expertise in support of Cofán territorial management and alternative income-generating activities. Over the years the fund has developed innovative solutions to the problems threatening its communities, which include oil exploitation, mining, new road construction and the advancing agricultural frontier.
