The CI Colombia program began with the Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape (ETPS) initiative, created in 2005, with the aim of generating voluntary cooperation between Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador, to strengthen the management of marine protected areas of the territorial seas. This includes management and conservation areas for strategic species, and offering economic alternatives to local communities, to ensure the sustainability of marine-coastal resources and local communities. Coral reef rehabilitation and recovery of fish stocks are part of their programme.
