Innovation Description

Imazon, is a Brazilian non-profit promoting sustainable development of the Amazon. It leverages its “special sauce” – producing trusted, neutral, high-quality data that tracks and reports on deforestation – and makes that available to partners that can drive behavior change. A successful pilot of this approach reduced deforestation by 90 percent in two years in the city of Paragominas. Imazon then worked to scale the approach in the State of Para.
