The use of renewable natural resources and watersheds in Ecuador can be characterized largely spontaneous or based on the needto use a particular resource, but not for a planned process, although this is changing now. In the Napo River Basin, which is the mostimportant means of transportation in the Ecuadorian Amazon, it is possible to identify concrete actions for land management with thepurpose optimizing planning and fostering development.

Climate change is a concern for small farmers who are in the Bolivian highlands, affecting their livelihoods. For this, practical measures are required for prevention and mitigation of damage caused by extreme climatic events (frost, drought, hailstorms and floods), a requirement which can be summarized as the need for an agricultural risk management, as these two activities are the basis for food security and incomes of small farmers living in daily risk. In this context, this document presents the systematization of the most successful local practices, presenting the economic and institutional frameworks I which they are implemented.
