The Amazon Sustainable Landscapes Program (ASL) was approved by the GEF Council in October 2015, as a pilot “Impact Program”, with incentives for an integrated regional approach under the SFM Strategy. 

 

 

The Program builds on over a decade of work in the Amazon to strengthen biodiversity conservation, reduce deforestation, and improve community livelihoods. These interventions together aim to strengthen protection, reduce deforestation, and improve ecosystem connectivity, thereby furthering the integrity of the local, regional, and global ecosystem services that the Amazon provides, including biodiversity conservation, carbon sequestration, and maintaining the hydrological cycle.

 

This brochure provides a short summary of each project under the ASL Program.
