Alianza Arkana is protecting the Amazon rainforest through strategic alliances, environmental stewardship, sustainable projects, and intercultural education programs.
Our work is concentrated in three main program areas:
Alianza Arkana partners with indigenous groups, human rights lawyers and other legal support organizations to advocate indigenous rights and environmental justice. We raise national and international awareness about environmental issues in the Amazon to end the pollution, deforestation, and other forms of unsustainable development that hurt communities and their ability to live on their lands.
We implement sustainable development projects that offer clean, appropriate and long-term alternatives to polluting waste management practices. We pilot programs that integrate recycling, compost, and other sustainable practices within local communities.
We support innovative, intercultural educational projects in communities throughout the Peruvian Amazon founded on indigenous traditions and conservation ethics. Our projects integrate indigenous knowledge with the best contemporary science and practices to strengthen cultural identity, cultivate leadership and reinforce a sustainable worldview founded on tradition and respect for nature.
