The Center for Amazonian Science and Innovation (CINCIA) is the leading research institution for environmental research and the development of technological innovation for biological conservation and environmental restoration in the Peruvian Amazon region. CINCIA generates scientific knowledge and integrates this knowledge to craft environmental management initiatives to promote sustainable development and, where needed, restoration and reforestation.
CINCIA focuses on developing solutions on how to reforest and restore degraded areas in one of the most biodiverse places on earth: the Peruvian Amazon. Our scientists work to build trust with government leaders, conservation specialists, miners and farmers to use the land more efficiently and with less environmental damage. The work we do will serve as a model for large-scale reforestation and restoration, improved biodiversity conservation, and more sustainable small-scale mining and farming techniques throughout the Amazon.
