miPáramo es una iniciativa público - privada y comunitaria para la conservación del bosque alto andino y páramo de Santurbán (Colombia), mediante acuerdos voluntarios con familias campesinas. La visión es lograr que la conservación de ecosistemas estratégicos sea socialmente valorada, económicamente viable y que contribuya con la calidad de vida de las familias.

El Páramo de Santurbán esta ubicado en los departamentos de Santander y Norte de Sanatander, es la principal fuente de agua de aprox. 2 millones de personas. Es un ecosistema altamente amenazado y vulnerable, frente al cambio del clima, incendios, deforestación, las prácticas agrícolas inadecuadas e intereses de proyectos de megaminería. Todo esto en un contexto de comunidades rurales con un alto nivel de necesidades básicas insatisfechas.

Mediante un mecanismo técnico – financiero, que genera inversiones con impactos cuantificables y verificables, que mejoran la seguridad hídrica de la cuenca, acompañado por un mejoramiento en la sostenibilidad socioeconómica de las comunidades de alta montaña en la zona de influencia del páramo de Santurbán, miPáramo funciona bajo un protocolo que comprende: Socialización, Caracterización, Concertación, Intervención, Monitoreo y evaluación. Logrando familias vinculadas a miPáramo, mediante Acuerdos de conservación- ACV, 13 municipios involucrados. La iniciativa es liderada por la Alianza BioCuenca, con el apoyo de la Embajada Suiza en Colombia – COSUDE, la Cooperación de Alemania GIZ, autoridades regionales y locales, Bavaria y GSI-LAC.

Adicionalmente continúa contando con un grupo de instituciones aliadas, entre ellas Cancillería de la República de Colombia, el Acueducto Metropolitano de Bucaramanga.
