The integration of local communities is a basic aspect when it comes to ensuring the success of both environmental projects and mining activities. In our case, as the mining restoration project is linked, the creation of relationships of trust and communication in the long term can generate great benefits for both the community and the mining company, in turn causing direct positive effects on the biodiversity of the affected area.

The aim of the project is to create a protocol of action that serves as a tool for accepting mining activities by local communities, using as a nexus the implementation of projects for the improvement of biodiversity in the affected territory. The protocol generated will serve as a methodological basis for the implementation of participatory processes and can be extrapolated to all types of mining operations present throughout the national and international territory.
