In four municipalities, Roundtables for Economic Development (Indepedencia, Raquia, Jangas, and Tarica) have been created. The roundtables serve to promote LED and lead the implementation of the 2017-2026 LED plans in each municipality. For example, Independencia will focus on the value chains of tourism and fabrics while Jangas will focus on guinea pigs and avocado. The roundtables have high participation rates from various actors, including various government ministries, mining companies, universities, institutes, local producers, and civil society. Examples of projects that the roundtables have supported include improved irrigation in Taricá and a reforestation project in Independencia to recuperate erosion-damaged soil.
