ARPA

The largest program in tropical forest conservation on the planet.

Component 1: Creation of new protected areas (PAs)

Subcomponent 1.1 – Identifying priority areas for the creation of protected areas

Goal:  To identify priority areas for the creation of protected areas in the Brazilian Amazon biome

Targets:

  • Carry out two studies on systematic conservation planning – one in the beginning and another one in the end of the Program’s 2nd Phase.
  • Update the Map of Priority Areas for the Conservation, Sustainable Use and Benefit Sharing of Brazilian Bilogical Diversity Prority – Amazon Biome, and create a Map of Priority Areas for the Creation of Protected Areas.

According to the Arpa Program, the protected areas (PAs) created should represent the Amazon biodiversity.  The Brazilian federal government’s map of Priority Areas for the Conservation, Sustainable Use and Benefit Sharing of Brazilian Bilogical DiversityPrority is the basis for each and every prioritization of areas for conservation by Arpa and its update is an essential activity for the Program.
