“Through data journalism and digital storytelling, InfoAmazonia tries to create a compelling narrative about the large-scale changes in a globally important place.”

Gustavo Faleiros, Project Coordinator

InfoAmazonia is a web platform that brings news and information about the Amazon forest and the nine countries it spans. The resources available on the website include maps and datasets that are ready to download and use, and a “special projects” section which includes miscellaneous programs such as a water safety network or a flood alert program. In addition, the website has a citizen participation section for crowdsourcing stories and news. With these diverse resources, InfoAmazonia aims to educate people about one of the most biodiverse areas of the world and the environmental challenges it faces.
