About Las Lianas
Las Lianas Resource Center works for environmental preservation, sustainable development, collective rights, and cultural survival, in partnership with indigenous Amazonian peoples. We are guided by a mission that weaves together three complementary goals:
1) Support autonomy of indigenous peoples and other place-identified peoples managing the land democratically and sustainably.
2) Work for environmental preservation locally, regionally, and internationally.
3) Value traditional knowledge and combine it with modern science in innovative technologies appropriate for a sustainable and just world.
