OBJECTIVES: USAID/Brazil?s Environment Program has supported and will continue to support the U.S. Foreign Assistance Objective of generating sustained economic growth under the Program Area ?Environment? by ensuring that environmental and natural resources are effectively managed. The Environment Program is conducted under the Program Element ?Natural Resources and Biodiversity? with a view to increasing the contribution of sustainable landscapes to biodiversity conservation and climate stability. Proposed activities should be aligned with conservation programs in the Brazilian Amazon Basin.
USAID/Brazil envisions a balanced partnership approach, reaching out to civil society, the public sector and the private sector to achieve sustainable landscapes that conserve biodiversity while contributing to climate stability. Proposed partnership activities may include, but are not limited to the following: environmental technical assistance, institutional strengthening of key actors, environmental advocacy, training programs and workshops on biodiversity conservation, biodiversity analyses and studies, environmental monitoring, sustainable production and value chain development, etc.
Potential partners include foundations, U.S. and non-U.S. NGOs, faith-based organizations, U.S. and non-U.S. private businesses, business and trade associations, international organizations, U.S. and non-U.S. colleges and universities, and other government agencies.
