The 90´s started with big changes in the international agenda: the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 (also known as the Earth Summit) marked an important milestone and a point of reflection that laid the foundations for a new world vision on development.
In this context and with the conviction that Latin America needs to generate capacities, leadership and conditions to move towards sustainable development, Fundacion Futuro Latinoamericano (FFLA) was created in 1993.
The foundation promotes a culture of collaborative dialogue between multiple stakeholders and sectors to enable them to find alternative solutions to their needs. It also looks to generate new capacities, strengthen the process of public policy construction and transform conflicts into collaborative situations. There exists a strong intent to advance towards innovative mechanisms of good governance in Latin America, looking to integrate sustainable models on a regional level .
