Activity Report 2019

The Amazon Fund's Activity Report for the year 2019 was published on June 29 (english version). The report is an important tool in promoting transparency and provides up-to-date information on the operation, donations, supported projects and the results achieved by the Amazon Fund. 

One of the highlights of the year was the conclusion of the "Mid-term Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Amazon Fund", which comprised the period from 2008 to 2018 and was carried out by a team of experts, with the technical coordination of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean – ECLAC, of the United Nations (UN). Using quantitative and qualitative methods, the independent consultants concluded that there is clear evidence that the fund has contributed to reducing deforestation in the Amazon, in addition to pointing out other positive results, lessons learned and challenges that lie ahead.
