Bancos de Hábitat, la visión innovadora para proteger los bosques en Colombia con el gobierno británico.

Colombia contará con 5000 hectáreas de Bancos de Hábitat,  mecanismo de compensación ambiental, las cuales conservarán algunos de los ecosistemas más vulnerables de nuestro territorio y escalará un modelo de negocio que traerá nuevas oportunidades de desarrollo rural. Esta meta será realidad gracias al trabajo conjunto entre el gobierno británico, a través de su embajada en Colombia y del programa Partnership for Forest (P4F), y Terrasos, empresa colombiana líder en la estructuración de compensación e inversión ambiental obligatoria. Este proyecto es una apuesta innovadora que le permitirá a Colombia contar con territorios para la conservación ambiental y en donde se llavarán a cabo procesos de restauración fortaleciendo la biodiversidad y el bienestar de las comunidades en diferentes regiones del país. https://www.terrasos.co/noticias
