Welcome to the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund - CEPF CERRADO Impact Panel. Here we can get an overview of the program's strategies, our beneficiaries, and the impacts and investments on biodiversity conservation, protection of the remnants of Cerrado, and strengthening civil society organizations. These impacts are periodically updated with each new technical report submission. Find below the descriptions of each tab that makes up the panel:
Look below a brief explanation of each component of the panel:

In this panel, we display the strategic overview of the program, presenting the investments detailed by calls, our strategic directions which include: (1) integration of biodiversity in the agricultural sector, (2) creation and management of protected areas, (3) support for socio-biodiversity chains, (4) species' protection, (5) information for decision-making and (6) strengthening civil society. It is possible to visualize the number of projects, the organizations implementing them, and their area of operation on the map. If you select the call, a strategic direction, or even a point on the map, all the other windows of this panel filter the information related to the selected item.
In this tab of the panel, we try to bring our list of beneficiaries, with the list of projects, their primary objective, the person in charge and the e-mail, so that eventually you can get in contact. You can ask for more information about the project, establish partnerships or co-finance specific actions of the project. We have a map that shows the area of activity of each project that we call Key Biodiversity Areas, KBA, which can be filtered from the selection of a beneficiary or project title.
In this field you One of our investment lines is the strengthening of protected areas, including the conservation units, which are part of the National System of Conservation Units, and the Indigenous Lands. This investment line also includes the mosaics of protected areas. In this tab, we can see the number of Protected Areas in which our beneficiaries operate and the number of organizations that have worked directly within these areas. Additionally, it shows the number of total hectares of conservation units and indigenous lands that have received financial support to strengthened their management systems. The activities developed in those areas are listed next to the maps. When selecting an area or activity, we will view other figures related to the area
During the first call, we promoted a strategic line of investment for endangered species. Six organizations are now working to positively influence the conservation status of the six priority species of the CEPF. Here you can see the photo of the species, its popular and scientific name, the title of the project, and the objectives each project wants to achieve. Furthermore, we included the sites and the social media networks related to each species, so that the public can follow carefully the leading news and events of the project and how the activities are progressing. Have you followed the social networks of our species today?
In this panel tab, we have the main impacts of our projects. We sought to establish indicators that could objectively represent our impacts. We separated the results by categories and monitored, for example, the impacts related to extractivism. The panel shows the number of cooperatives strengthened, the natural resources collected and processed sustainably in the cerrado, and the income increase, among other indicators. We also monitor the impacts on gender equity issues by documenting the number of women and young people who have been trained and are directly involved in the project.
Another window of this panel, called the Interactive Network, concerns the number of organizations directly and indirectly linked to the program. We mapped our beneficiaries, the partners of the beneficiaries. Building the links, it allows us to visualize the network that CEPF's investment has sustained during the program's execution. We mobilized more than 300 civil society organizations, including universities, government, NGOs, and private companies.
