About this grant

The Centro de Estudos Avançados de Promoção Social e Ambiental is a nonprofit organization in the Amazon founded in 1985 to promote sustainable community development and Amazon forest conservation by improving public policies and quality of life of children, youth, indigenous peoples, and minorities. Over the project period, the grantee is expanding its installation of solar systems, testing small-scale biogas production, participating in design and implementation of a national renewable energy trade fair, conducting training, and monitoring and collecting data to publish results of its systems operation and management for replication. With this increase, the organization will supply four villages with solar water pumping systems.
