Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Vitória da Riva Carvalho's work was prepared when Vitória da Riva Carvalho was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
By introducing an impressive array of environmentally-friendly economic development projects to the Amazon’s most deforested region, Vitória da Riva Carvalho is proving that conservation does not have to come at the expense of economic growth. She is creating entirely new value chains around low-impact tourism, while protecting the forest and incentivizing cutting-edge environmental research and education.
