The PBF Floresta investments are directed to the sustainable production arrangements and decided interactively. The goal is to boost the productive chains in the communities that are fulfilled by the program, seeking to contribute to improve the economic activities that already exists and co-create others inside the innovation and sustainable development perspective.

The main productive chains supported by PBF are: cacau, açaí, pirarucu, Amazon nut, vegetable oils, rubber, managed wood, handicrafts and communitarian basis tourism. Agroforestry systems, lake managements, aviculture, communitarian groceries store and small commercial enterprises are also supported. The participatory process to choose the investments and the administrative flexibility of FAS, allows the resources to be widely applied, including infrastructures and equipments as well as services and qualifications.
