Resumen

The Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia (CCLC), inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2011, is the largest productive designated cultural landscape in Latin America. The CCLC is a complex territory where cultural, social and productive institutions encounter rich biodiversity, granting the area a national policy for its preservation. The CCLC encompasses six farming landscapes, equating in 340,000 hectares of surface, in a unique, sustainable,
and productive landscape that represents the Colombian coffee tradition. The physiography of valleys and steep slopes, with glaciers and volcanoes on the tops of ridges and native forests and biological corridors, are strategic for the conservation of its biodiversity. Nature-culture linkages are represented in a tradition lasting over 100 years and illustrated through the adaptation of small cultivation plots, the smart use of water sources, the development of building materials, the symbolic understanding of the landscape, and coexistence with
disasters risks.
