Working to make the Amazon worth more standing than cut down

Baixar Publicação

For more than a decade, the Foundation for Amazon Sustainability (FAS) has led  conservationefforts in the Amazon, focusing on sustainable economic development of livelihoods for the traditional river communities, or riberinha, that can help make the forest more valuable standing than cut down. In focusing on the so-called Children of the Forest, FAS seeks to balance the economic realities of human civilization with the need for ecological conservation.

To further this focus, FAS has partnered with the University of Notre Dame’s Meyer Business on the Frontlines Program to develop more sophisticated business solutions to ensure that the river communities maintain livelihoods that support both the forest and their families.
