About this grant

Operation Native Amazon is a Brazilian nongovernmental organization specializing in protecting the Amazon Forest, rivers, and the Indigenous peoples who call the forest home. Over the last project period, the organization mapped and monitored an increase in hydroelectric finance and development in the Juruena River basin. This project renewal will support the organization to work with partner organizations to mitigate the environmental and social impacts of hydroelectric development and oil and gas exploration slated for the Middle Jurua River basin in the Amazon forest.
