Fundacao Vitoria Amazonica

Economic Alternatives Program


That is where the Fundacao Vitoria Amazonica (FVAC) can play a significant role. FVAC already has a strong track record in the region. It was one of the key players in developing the management plan for the park and helped launch a local artisans’ cooperative. FVAC is taking a comprehensive look at the economic viability of sustainable activities, including how to organize and manage these unique local economies and which enterprises are least harmful to the environment. It will organize local workshops and community meetings to develop and implement the findings. Ultimately, both the indigenous people and indigenous species of the blackwater ecosystem will benefit and be preserved
