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. CI will build the capacities of IPLCs to lead on their own and give them the tools to access the funding they need to carry out their own initiatives to conserve forests and support livelihoods. Project activities will benefit more than 68,000 men, women and children in total.
The Project Coordinator provides logistics and administrative support to the Project Management Unit (PMU) of the “Amazonia Verde” project.
