Amazon Basin

Team Europe Initiative


Transformational potential:

  • Leverage the transformative impact of EU-Amazon Basin cooperation by joining forces with EU Member States, Commission DGs and the JRC
  • Improve the capacity of the Amazon Basin countries to mitigate CO2 emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change, and to stop deforestation and improve the  biodiversity protection

The Team Europe Proposal responds to challenges in the Amazon Basin:

  • Related to the deforestation and degradation of the Amazon Forest
  • Not covered through national TEIs on green transition, climate change and biodiversity

Activities include:

  1. Sustainable management of natural resources through integrated management of landscapes and sustainable land use strategies
  2. Inclusive and sustainable growth and livelihoods, including the promotion of transparent and deforestation-free supply chains
  3. Environmental governance and human rights
  4. Sustainable finance

It covers the Amazon Basin countries: Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela.
