Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia

Amazon Environmental Research Institute ‒ IPAM
Brasilia, Brazil

The Amazon Environmental Research Institute is a scientific, non-governmental, non- partisan and non-profit organization that has worked for the sustainable development of the Amazon since 1995. Our purpose is to consolidate the Amazonian tropical development model by 2035, by producing knowledge, implementing local initiatives and directing public policies, in a way that influences economic development, social equality, and environmental preservation. Our mission is to promote science, education, and innovation for an environmentally sound, economically prosperous, and socially just Amazon. We work in three main axes: low carbon farming in the Amazon, with zero deforestation and increased production; protected natural territories, to improve conservation and governance in the Amazon protected areas and indigenous lands; and sustainable family production, to create healthy food, quality of life and forest preservation.
