The methodology used was of briefings in which presentations were made of the work of CORPOURABÁ, the study discussed the current state of the Páramo del Sol and presented its management plan.

Additionally, there was a group effort where the program and project management plan were reviewed, identified by each institution and the people who attended, on how they can articulate their plans for 2011. Proposed projects were presented and responsibilities and potential resources were defined to implement the plan in a participatory manner by the users of the goods and services provided by the wilderness.
