Welcome to Partnership for the Conservation of Amazon Biodiversity

Our Work

Partnership for the Conservation of Amazon Biodiversity (PCAB) aims to ensure the integrity and conservation of the Brazilian Amazon ecosystem over the next 20 years – with the lasting effects of the Partnership – as well as improve the well-being and socioeconomic status of rural and traditional communities living in the Amazon region. The governments collaborate to achieve the following results: 1) Protected areas are fully consolidated, meeting their management, implementation, monitoring and conservation roles 2) Biodiversity-based sustainable value chains and businesses are expanded, 3) Private sector engagement actively fosters sustainable-livelihoods toward a sustainable economic model for Amazon communities; 4) Throughout these pillars, USAID aims to incorporate science, technology and innovation to improve biodiversity conservation practices.
