With over 20 years of experience, Fundacion Futuro Latinoamericano (FFLA) has been able to design training courses and offer high quality technical assistance services throughout Latin America. This line of action was developed as a result of the needs and demands of our clients as well as an answer to the problems observed in the region regarding socio-environmental conflicts, environmental governance and negotiation and others. We rely on a highly qualified team that looks to share their knowledge and strengthen capacities of diverse stakeholders both in the public and private sector on these topics.

Our objective
To contribute to formal and non-formal capacity and skill building processes for FFLA´s target groups in the region, collaborating in this way to sustainable development in Latin America.

How do we work?
The methodology that FFLA uses in the courses combines a small amount of theory with an important use of practical exercises and role play. The courses are based on real cases through which the participants feel strongly identified, establishing a unique opportunity to apply and practice the skills learnt during the course that can be from three to ten days in duration.

• In the last three years (2009 – 2012) FFLA has trained more than 2200 people in our areas of expertise in 12 countries in the region.
• FFLA has intervened in 7 socio-environmental conflicts.
• FFLA has contributed to regional knowledge with 15 new publications including systematizations, manuals and studies.

• Transforming socio-environmental conflicts: in Latin America we have observed an increase in conflicts over natural resources. Many of these conflicts play out on a local level although they have their roots in national politics and international dynamics. This course helps to understand the dynamic of conflicts and proposes analytical tools that can help make decisions on the possibility and convenience of acting on this.
• Environmental negotiation: Environmental conflict requires ever more urgent negotiation capacities; under this premise the course introduces the concept of conflict transformation theory with the objective to promote a collaborative negotiation.
• Environmental governance: Facing a global environmental and social crisis, the principal key instruments for sustainable development recognize governance and a fundamental dimension for the management of Protected Areas. The course promotes a greater understanding as well as best practices in the everyday management of natural resources without neglecting the social dimension.
• Sensitive program to conflict and Do No Harm: Do No Harm is a methodological tool and a strategy to improve the quality of interventions, with the aim to analyze the interactions that exist between project activities and the context of conflict.
• Peace culture promoters: The proposed methodology is based on a peace culture formation that FFLA has developed and which has three dimensions: feel, think and act. This pedagogy aims to change people's attitudes so as to modify the structures of injustice and violence.
