Geographically, Meli primarily focus its activities on the core of a region known as “Arc of Deforestation”. This is the location where, historically, most of the deforestation takes place and where, currently, 75% of the Amazonian deforestation is currently happening.
This region is seriously endangered by illegal large scale burning and monoculture. Meli focus on the most endangered region in the Amazon, where practical solutions are needed.
Meli connects the local perspective to a global network, developing a “glocal” midset in both scales and making positive impact in the whole planet.
