Rationale: Why is this case study interesting?

  • The Eastern Hills are composed of approximately 14,170 hectares, an area rich in diverse ecological and landscape that has a wide diversity of flora and fauna, allowing you to have different ecosystems. Before the conquest of the Spaniards, the hills have a special value for Muiscas [1], which looked like the holy places, mainly in the gaps that were sites of worship and ceremonies. In 1976 the then INDERENA declares: Protected Forest Reserve and since then the governments have issued several rules for the purpose of reforestation and care of his great natural value.
