UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Global Goals or SDGs also known as Agenda 2030 are a set of goals and objectives for the "World We Want" based on equality and human rights for all the stakeholders and participants in the world. The Sustainable Development Goals are a working system for the evaluation, observation and transparency of thousands of programs and projects around the world working together to make the right choices for all of us.

Piaroa Society is a Peaceful Society and Amenable to International Cooperation
The indigenous Piaroa know the importance of nature and the environment. We have been struggling to hold onto our native territories ever since they were first invaded by the Spanish 400 years ago, in our case with peace and making many concessions to the new settlers. Today the Piaroa still retain 90% of the native territory which we have inhabited for more than 1,000 generations. The Piaroa have been able to protect our territory and the heart of our culture until now.
In 2015 members of the Piaroa of Catañiapo, Cuao and the Paraguaza associated with Globcal International which promotes programs and projects with the United Nations SDGs, in 2019 Globcal International commissioned and designated two Piaroa ambassadors to work as representatives to provide educational workshops and programs in communities that depend on agricultural sustenance and production to promote the ideals of sustainability to better understand the provisioning of ecosystem services and agroforestry development.
“The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)s, otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.”

Through Globcal International, Piaroa societies are trying to preserve their culture, language, customs and traditional ways of life. Globcal has been looking for the right circumstances under which it can implement natural area preservation, ecosystem services, agroforestry and forest management programs that can be integrated neutrally providing mutual benefit for the society. To accomplish their goals together the Piaroa Protectorate Partnership (PPP) also called the Piaroa Partnership Platform (PPP) is being developed.
Recognition and inclusion of community-based monitoring data collection with full respect for Free, Prior and Informed consent of Indigenous Peoples in reports by the UN and national governments.

Participatory and integrated approaches are the only way to “to leave no one behind”.
