OUR PURPOSE

The Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia (IPAM) [Amazon
Environmental Research Institute] is a scientific, non-governmental, non-
partisan and non-profit organization that has worked for the sustainable
development of the Amazon since 1995. Our purpose is to consolidate the
Amazonian tropical development model by 2035, by producing knowledge,
implementing local initiatives and directing public policies, in a way that
influences economic development, social equality, and environmental
preservation.
Our mission is to promote science, education, and innovation for an
environmentally sound, economically prosperous, and socially just Amazon.

Our story

In 1995, still under the impact of ECO 92 developments, a group of researchers gathered in Belém do Pará, in Brazil, to create the IPAM, a non-governmental organization with a pioneering approach: to produce scientific knowledge engaged in actions in the field and discussions about public policies. At that time, there were many questions about the Amazon and the speed and causes of its devastation, its influence on climate regulation and the steps to generate a model of sustainable development for the local population.

Over the years, IPAM has made essential contributions to Brazil and the world by producing knowledge and testing the application and viability of public policies. After 20 years, we know more about the Amazon, but the challenges persist and are renewed. That small group has expanded to nine offices and about one hundred employees, but the IPAM approach is still necessary.
