Our work in the Amazon
For more than 40 years, WWF has been at the forefront in protecting the Amazon. Building on this experience, WWF is working with goverments, local communities and others to ensure conservation and sustainable development throughout the world's largest rainforest and river system.
This work is being achieved through:
- Promoting the responsible use of natural resources and sustainable management
- Ensuring environmental and social standards for infrastructure development, particularly road and dam projects
- Developing national programmes for reducing emissions from deforestation
- Consolidating and expanding protected areas
