Amazon Basin Project: Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme in the Amazon River Basin considering Climate Variability and Change

Project Objective: to support the Basin countries in the implementation of the Strategic Action Programme (SAP), promoting Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in a source-to-sea continuum.

That is, through a holistic approach linking land systems, water and river flows loaded with sediments, biota (living organisms), and pollutants, connecting the river sources with its mouth in the Amazon delta, entering the Atlantic Ocean as an immense 240 km wide estuary touching the coast, and continuing its way to the open oceans. Therefore, the integrated management of environmental resources becomes essential, enabling the Amazon riparian countries to meet their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and environmental convention targets.
