The program reached its goal in 2017, the year in which ARPA, the world’s largest tropical-forest protection initiative, celebrated its 15th anniversary, further proof of the efficacy of its management model.

 

 

ARPA is made possible by donations from Brazil and abroad, with its main supporters being the Global Environment Facility (The GEF), through the World Bank, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), through the German Development Bank (KfW), the Amazon Fund, through the Brazilian National Development Bank (BNDES), the WWF Network, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF), Anglo-American, Natura and O Boticário. Studies indicate that ARPA’s support increases PA-management effectiveness¹.

 

 

ARPA also makes an important contribution to mitigating climate change: between 2005 and 2015, ARPA-supported PAs avoided carbon emissions equivalent to the total amount generated annually through motorized transport worldwide². ARPA is also a benchmark and model for similar conservation programs in the Peruvian and Colombian Amazon.
