Complying with the agenda, the mission of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to the ACTO, met with directors and representatives of international cooperation who are partners of ACTO, with the objective of exchanging information on the projects to be submitted by ACTO to the World Environment Fund (FMA) and the Green Climate Fund. ACTO Secretary General, Alexandra Moreira, referring to international cooperation, expressed that each agency is committed to working for the Amazon Region. “We are various actors who are contributing to the public management of this important ecosystem in different ways,” she explained.

Moreira also assured that in view of the 48 million people living in the region, the need to implement an agenda with a much more socioeconomic vision is more urgent than ever. She also stated that since 2019, ACTO and the IDB have been managing a portfolio of programs and projects for the implementation of concrete actions for water security, and for the management of water resources in the Amazon region. For his part, the head of the IDB’s Water and Sanitation Division, Sergio Campos, explained the projects that will be presented to the GEF and the Green Climate Fund.

The first one refers to the management of the groundwater aquifer system in the Amazon region. It is a study that will reveal the quality, quantity, and conditions of water availability in the aquifer.
