The Amazonia Verde Project proposes to conserve nearly 73M hectares (24.5M ha directly and 48.5M ha indirectly) by 2025 by empowering Indigenous Peoples and local communities and pioneering new financial mechanisms to advance conservation investments and incentives. The long-term conservation of the Amazon rainforest requires capacities, will, and finance.
