ProAves in partnership with the Corporación para el Desarrollo Sostenible del Urabá (CORPOURABA), worked in developing the study of the current state of the Páramo del Sol and, based on this, the formulation of the Management Plan of the Páramo del Sol.

This was developed to comply with national conservation objectives and so to order, plan and monitor the use of the Páramo de Urrao through programs, projects and actions to guide the conservation, restoration, management and sustainable use of natural resources, while ensuring the supply of environmental goods and services essential to human well-being that for a period of 10 years.

The action strategies outlined were:

* Research Strategy.

* Management of reserve areas Strategy.

* Community and institutional Participation Strategy.

* Environmental monitoring, control and surveillance Strategy.

* Financial and management strategy.

Defined programs:

Based on the current state study 9 programs and 30 projects were identified for the management of the moor, which have already started their implementation with the support of CORPOURABA, which has engaged the Urrao community and its companies in its development.

With the support of:
