Action for a Sustainable Amazonia

Project Summary

The project's principal objective is to promote the formulation and application of policies that incorporate biodiversity conservation values and principles into sectoral development planning and reform. This will be achieved through the identification and provision of alternative production practices for agro-forestry and and extractive sectors, valuation of biological goods and services for assessing planning and investment priorities, consensus building activities with decision-makers and civil society for policy and regulatory review. Project activities will provide critical information for decision makers and private sectors. The project will also strengthen and expand a broad network of stakeholders whose enhanced capacities will provide the basis for future collaboration in ecosystem management and conservation.
