In a virtual meeting, on September 15, 2020, a memorandum of understanding was signed between the Charles Darwin Foundation (FCD) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Ecuador to ratify the continuity of the efforts that both institutions maintain to the development of actions in the field of research, training, generation of information, production of knowledge and technical assistance to contribute to the conservation and sustainability of Galapagos.
María José Barragán, acting executive director of the CDF, indicated that the memorandum ratifies “this long-term alliance and projects it into the present and into the future under the framework of the collaborative work of both institutions, for the benefit of the archipelago of Galapagos ”.
Both WWF and the CDF fulfill the role of technical cooperation in the implementation of various lines of research and applied work in conservation and sustainable development projects on the islands, including the contribution of the implementation of the Management Plan for Protected Areas of Galapagos for Good Living and the generation of relevant technical information for decision-making.
“This agreement offers us new opportunities to continue with this historic trajectory of working together; mainly now that we have their collaboration in the preparation of inputs for the proposal of the Green Climate Fund, in which it is important to have the CDF, recognizing its technical and scientific capacity and its trajectory. It is satisfactory to ratify this commitment because we could not work in Galapagos, without the people of Galapagos and without an institution as serious as the CDF ”, expressed Tarsicio Granizo, director of WWF.
