About this grant

The Juruena River is one of two important tributaries that flows into the vast Tapajos River in the Brazilian Amazon. It is home to numerous indigenous peoples and important biodiversity and freshwater resources. Operação Amazonia Nativa (Operation Native Amazon) has worked in the region for more than 50 years. This grant will support the grantee to map the actors promoting hydroelectric finance and development and monitor environmental and social impacts to strengthen safeguards for project finance.
