The State of Amazonas' Environment and Sustainable Development Agency, in partnership with Fundacao Djalma Batista, is using this grant to increase and improve the protected-area system in Amazonas, Brazil. Amazonas, in northwestern Brazil, is comparable in size to Western Europe and presents a significant opportunity to design and implement large-scale conservation networks in the Brazilian Amazon. Outcomes include creation of six new protected areas (up to six million hectares), and implementation and effective management of new and existing Amazonas protected areas (12 areas totaling 1.2 million hectares).
