Brazil-UK PACT is now seeking to fund projects that will support the National Foundation for Indigenous Peoples (FUNAI) to strengthen territorial and environmental management of indigenous lands. Through targeted technical assistancethis Call for Proposals aims to increase the value of standing forests, to mitigate climate change, while also helping to increase engagement of indigenous peoples and local communities in the future of Brazil's forests sector.

Pillar 1: Land Regularisation - Conduct land use and occupancy assessments in claimed areas, as well as in areas already in the identification and delimitation study phase; Conduct socio-environmental assessments and the collection of environmental, cartographic, and land information to support multidisciplinary studies of indigenous lands.
