About the project

Joining forces for an end to deforestation in the Amazon.

A living forest is better for everyone. The PlenaMata platform was created from this perspective. We mobilize people, businesses, institutions and communities for a great purpose: to work together for forest conservation and ending deforestation in the Amazon. Here, knowledge will generate movement. For this, we bring together data, indicators, analysis and shine a light on initiatives for the conservation and regeneration of the Amazon.

Mapping and analysis
Stories, information, and localized and contextualized data about the Amazon

Good initiatives
New ideas, technologies, methodologies, models, and good examples of projects for conservation and halting deforestation in the Amazon.

Data for knowledge
Network of shared information to generate knowledge, always with an eye on ecosystems, production chains, traditional communities, and peoples.

Collective mobilization
We encourage new commitments and actions that bring together different societal actors. We are always open to participation by individuals and organizations.

Learn more about the state of the forest and contribute to its conservation and restoration.
