Resume:

The growing degradation of the Amazon – especially due to expansion of agriculture activities, mining and exploitation of timber products threatens the world's largest tropical rainforest ecosystem and people whose livelihoods are closely linked to the forest and the forest's resources. The project supports five communities in their joint efforts to protect community forest in the Amazon with the impact objective to: Prevent deforestation or degradation of the forest area ANMIB Porvenir and secure regional ecological connectivity for the benefit of people, climate, and biodiversity. The long-term goal of strengthening the ecological connectivity is to fight fragmentation, strengthen biodiversity, ensuring species can move between protected areas and maintain genetic strength for the benefit of forest and ecosystem services. In addition, cohesive areas under coordinated protection will make a common front against the mining industry posing a major threat to the environment.
