"DAR is a relatively young organization in the region, whose main characteristic is that instead of saying what to do, it does. This is why we always have recognized the quality of the way they work.

Who we work with
We coordinate with regional and national decision makers with competencies on the elaboration of environmental public policies, environmental planning and oversight, and indigenous institutionalism.
International Financial Institutions
We draw the attention of international banks that grant loans to implement projects in the Amazon, in order to enhance their social and environmental safeguards, and transparency policies.
Their capacities are strengthened for the knowledge of their collective rights, especially the rights to territory and natural resources. Similarly, we work on strengthening indigenous surveillance.
We coordinate with different organizations in order to achieve common goals, leading diverse groups and participation spaces.
