CINCIA is the leading institution for environmental research and innovation in the Amazonian region. CINCIA generates scientific knowledge and integrates this knowledge to craft environmental management initiatives to promote sustainable development and where needed, reforestation and pollution mitigation.
CINCIA— through our vast expertise in forestry, propagating native trees, restoring nutrients to depleted soils, and understanding the damage done by mercury dumping— is devising solutions to reforest one of the most biodiverse places on earth while mitigating the damage to land, soils, water, and fish life from increasing deforestation and mercury poisoning. Uniquely, our scientists also work to build trust with government leaders, miners and farmers to use the land more efficiently and with less environmental damage. The unprecedented results will serve as a long-range model for large-scale reforestation, better human, plant and animal health, and improved mining and farming techniques throughout the Amazon.
