2021 will be the last year of implementation of the Amazonia 2.0 project, so we are starting this new year with a lot of energy. During the months of January and February we carried out multiple activities and planning meetings, both nationally and regionally.
CONEXIÓN AMAZONÍA (Amazon Connection) is an animated short film that seeks to portray the story of the local actors of the Amazonia 2.0 project in a universal, intercultural and intergenerational way, which breaks language barriers and demonstrates in a narrative and dynamic way, the intervention model of the project in its 6 countries of implementation: Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Suriname.
On February 12th, different countries in South America celebrate Amazon Day. To be part of this commemoration, the Amazonia 2.0 project, together with IUCN South America and the European Union in Peru, joined forces in the organization of the "Amazonian Evening".
An overview of the bilateral agreements between Brazil and Peru, concerning the border area between the State of Acre and the Peruvian Department of Madre de Dios, was presented at the beginning of December to a group of entities operating in that region, these include the Acre State Environment Secretariat (SEMA - AC), the Pro-Indian Commission of Acre (CPI - Acre), the Indigenous Federation of the Madre de Dios River and its tributaries (Fenamad) and the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio). The survey was conducted by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN - Brazil), as part of the activities of Amazônia 2.0 (A2.0) project.
