This platform, which is led by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Government of Canada and Conservation International, facilitates and creates the necessary conditions for the development of business models that improve the quality of life of Amazonian communities, contributing to the achievement of national climate goals and the Sustainable Development Goals.

"We are talking about helping the local population to develop sustainable economic activities, taking advantage of the great biodiversity of the Amazon forests, and thus contribute to achieving international goals and commitments to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change," said Claudio Schneider, Senior Technical Director of Conservation International in Peru.

Important collaboration agreements were also signed during ExpoAmazon 2022, held in Chachapoyas, Amazonas. One of them was with Sierra y Selva Exportadora, through which they will join forces to identify Amazonian products that can be positioned outside the country, such as organic coffee with fair price certification from cooperatives in protected areas with which they work, or aromatic infusions made by AwajĂșn communities.

In this regard, it is worth mentioning the presence of the Cooperativa de Servicios MĂșltiples Bosque del Alto Mayo (Coopbam), one of the first cooperatives to operate within a protected natural area that has organic and fair trade certification and has managed to market its coffees in international markets such as Germany, the United States, Holland, Australia and Canada.

Another partnership that took place during ExpoAmazon was between Conservation International Peru and the Coalition for Sustainable Production, with the objective of promoting multi-stakeholder alliances at the national level and a favorable climate for sustainable business, which will allow the consolidation of sustainable jurisdictions and production chains free of deforestation.

The Business Alliance for the Amazon promotes the participation of women in business, empowering them economically and improving their entrepreneurial skills:

  • And of indigenous peoples, guaranteeing their participation in decision-making regarding inclusive public policies.

Thus, we can highlight the participation with teas and infusions of the members of the Bosque de las Nuwas, a space managed entirely by the women of the native community of Shampuyacu, through the Bosque de las Nuwas Association, who through the eco-tourism destination they lead, also put in value their culture, rescue their ancestral knowledge, and face one of the main problems that challenges the community; deforestation.

The Business Alliance for the Amazon is already present in Madre de Dios, San Martin, Huanuco and Ucayali, where inter-institutional cooperation agreements were signed with regional governments in order to align public and private investment priorities; and will expand its scope to the regions of Amazonas, Pasco and Loreto, to generate synergies and strengthen technical and innovation capabilities.
