The Chachi communities, with Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), Conservation International (CI), and EcoCiencia, are working together on an conservation incentive that rewards local communities for proper environmental stewardship. This has been accomplished by establishing a fund though which the communities are able to pay reserve guards, improve community welfare, and establish environmentally sound agricultural techniques.
