About this grant

Operation Native Amazon is a Brazilian nongovernmental organization that protects the Amazon rainforest, rivers and Indigenous communities. The project supports the grantee’s collaboration with local partners to address the environmental and social repercussions of hydroelectric and oil and gas ventures in the Middle Jurua and Juruena River basins. With this increase, Operation Native Amazon will amplify community advocacy and mobilization efforts, facilitate public dialogues and foster knowledge and strategy exchange between communities across both territories.
