This Project contributes to the Amazon Waters Initiative.


The Amazon Waters Initiative promotes a vision of the Amazon basin where the region is valued not only for its rich tropical forests and its carbon sequestration potential, but also for its freshwater ecosystem, the largest and most diverse in the world.  


Amazon Waters Initiative’s goal is to maintain the connectivity of this vast, interlinked, and dynamic freshwater system, supporting human well being, wildlife, and the environments on which they depend.
