“Paths to the Amazon” is the first edition of a mapping of initiatives that support impact organizations active in the Amazon, committed to the sustainable development of the region. The action is an initiative of the Partners for the Amazon Platform (PPA), in partnership with USAID Brazil and the Bioversity Alliance/CIAT. The mapping was organized with support from the Amazon Investor Coalition (AIC), the CERTI Foundation and the Partnerships for Forests program, funded by the UK government. As a director, he relied on Quintessa, a reference impact accelerator in the sector.

The publication aims to provide a contribution to the ecosystem by giving visibility to the different initiatives that already exist, exploring their differentials, types of support offered, levels of investment and financing that have been directed towards the Amazon, as well as facilitating the connection between the entrepreneurial population and the initiatives that can support it.
