Sustainability for the Amazon, Security for the World

Today, the Amazon is at an urgent tipping point. Shocking levels of poverty, food insecurity and hunger, driven by rampant deforestation — and magnified by the deadly coronavirus pandemic — are threatening the region’s very survival.


INMED Partnerships for Children (INMED) and The Sustainable Amazon Foundation (FAS) are partnering to build an Aquaponics Center of Excellence to strengthen food security, economic  recovery and sustainable livelihoods for all indigenous and traditional peoples of the Amazon, while protecting critical habitat and biodiversity in the Amazon basin.

Nearly half of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day— with an additional 122 million people expected to join those ranks by 2030 because of climate change.

INMED Partnerships for Children is a nonprofit international humanitarian development organization whose sole mission is to end poverty. Through multisector partnerships and in-country affiliates, INMED develops sustainable systems that build pathways for vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance—breaking complex cycles of poverty for current and future generations. INMED’s programs in adaptive agriculture and aquaponics, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, and economic development have transformed the lives of millions of children and their families since 1986.
