Results of this stage will be announced in November.
The public notice “Enraíza PPA: For Sociobiodiverse & Sustainable Amazonia” received 58 proposals from various locations in the Legal Amazon, which comprises the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Tocantins.
The results of this stage will be announced on the 21st of November and on the 23rd there will be an orientation workshop for the selected bidders, with the beginning of the elaboration of the complete proposal for the second stage.
The objective is to invest around R$ 5 million in existing and active projects in different locations in the Legal Amazon in two types of financing – one focused on initiatives to strengthen impact businesses and the other for territorial development in the Amazon.
The call is the result of a strategic partnership between the Plataforma Parceiros pela Amazônia (PPA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Bioversity/CIAT Alliance.
The call will provide the growth of initiatives already in progress, being an effective instrument to leverage resources, catalyze transformations and engage organizations active in the territory.
The PPA is a multisectoral collective action initiative that aims to develop and identify innovative and tangible solutions for sustainable development and conservation of biodiversity, forests and natural resources in the Brazilian Amazon.
It seeks to leverage positive socio-environmental impact investments in the region, share good practices and foster innovative partnerships that integrate all sectors of society, by fostering development partnerships capable of contributing to the development vision of various “Amazon(s)”, with quality of life, rich biodiversity and sustainable use of its natural resources.
