The Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA) generates scientific knowledge and integrates this knowledge to craft environmental management initiatives to promote sustainable development and, where needed, restoration and reforestation. Powering science and society for environmental solutions.
CINCIA focuses on developing solutions on how to reforest and restore degraded areas in one of the most biodiverse places on earth: the Peruvian Amazon. Our scientists work to build trust with government leaders, conservation specialists, miners and farmers to use the land more efficiently and with less environmental damage. The work we do will serve as a model for large-scale reforestation and restoration, improved biodiversity conservation, and more sustainable small-scale mining and farming techniques throughout the Amazon.
Conservation International Bolivia
Conservation International works to building upon a strong foundation of science, partnership and field demonstration and empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity by combining fieldwork with innovations in science, policy and finance.
EcoCiencia Foundation is a private, non-profit, Ecuadorian scientific organization whose mission is to conserve biological diversity through scientific research, the recovery of traditional knowledge and environmental education, promoting harmonious ways of life between human beings and nature.
FCDS Colombia is dedicated to promoting peace through environmental protection and sustainable development, especially in the Colombian Amazon with emphasis on the Chiribiquete National Park in Guaviare, and the basin of Putumayo river. Indigenous communities face the challenge of conflict due to illegal activities taking place in their forests. FCDS works with local actors promoting dialogue, reconciliation, and participation in sustainable development.
FENAMAD stands for the Native Federation of the Madre de Dios River and Tributaries and is the regional organization that represents 37 communities in the department of Madre de Dios (2 of them located in Cusco) that are grouped into seven Indigenous Peoples. FENAMAD seeks to defend the rights of the Amazon, guarantee respect for life and preserve its territory.
Field Projects International
Field Project International’s mission is to protect and study wildlife using hands-on education and innovations in conservation technology. We are currently partnering with them for the InSitu Labs initiative.
Instituto Centro de Vida (ICV)
Founded in Mato Grosso on April 14, 1991, the ICV is a non-profit Civil Society Organization (OSCIP) whose actions reach international, national and state levels in the areas of transparency, environmental governance and public policies, as well as the municipal level through practical experiences.
ICV seeks to disseminate these innovations in order to expand and influence other actors beyond the territories in which they operate. They do this based on studies and analyzes, as well as on field experiences, always looking for the effective participation of the actors in this process.
The In Situ Lab Initiative (ISL) hopes to catalyze the monitoring human-wildlife interactions movement by empowering local scientists and community leaders with modern wildlife population monitoring and pathogen surveillance tools. ISL represents a movement towards a decentralized and community-run One Health laboratory network. In literal terms, we are making a blueprint for performing routine wildlife community health assessments and pathogen screening in-country and near sites of sample collection. The ISL initiative formally launched in October 2020, with the first hub of the decentralized network to be established at Amazon Conservation’s Los Amigos Biological Station in the Peruvian Amazon.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
IUCN is a membership Union composed of both government and civil society organizations. It harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its more than 1,400 Member organizations and the input of more than 18,000 experts. This diversity and vast expertise makes IUCN the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.
