Tierras Indígenas

Tierras Indígenas is the first interactive online platform that provides accurate maps and critical information on lands and territories of indigenous peoples and communities in Paraguay, along with contextual data on forest cover and changes, fires and other relevant data for Indigenous Peoples, civil society organizations, universities, public and private sector institutions. It is designed to help indigenous peoples and communities protect their territorial rights, promote security of land tenure, access and care for the natural assets of their lands and territories.
