Amazon Fund's logical framework - 2017
This document is a revised version of the Amazon Fund’s logical framework, released in 2010. This version considers adjustments resulting from changes in the dynamics of deforestation and in the emphases of public policies, especially the Plan of Action for Prevention and Control of Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon - PPCDAm, which had a new phase released at the end of 2016. The experience with monitoring and evaluating the impacts of projects supported by the Amazon Fund has also led to improvements such as the review of effectiveness indicators and the main risks that may affect their success. Adjustments have also been made in the terminology used, making it more compatible with the actions that the Amazon Fund supports and harmonizing it with the concepts used by the BNDES in its monitoring and evaluation procedures for the other projects and programs it finances.
The Amazon under debate: opportunities, challenges and solutions
The texts that have resulted from transcribing the discussions held at the BNDES during the brainstorming sessions on the Amazon Fund are pleasant to read, yet provocative. They clearly portray the creative and candid mood that permeated throughout the discussions. It was a pleasure to watch a team of experts on the environment dialogue on issues and proposals for the Amazon in an organized, methodical way and with mutual respect. Transcripts of the talks recapture the quality and depth of the discussions perfectly.
