The Linha D’Água Institute is a non-profit organization based in São Paulo. It was founded in 2013 to undertake private social investment by the voluntary transfer of funds for projects to conserve biological diversity and Brazilian coastal socio-cultural systems in a systematic manner, supported by planning and monitoring.
By fostering innovative arrangements that enable sustainable development, Linha D’Água seeks to raise civil society awareness of the need to conserve the coastal and marine environment, as well as to address social and regional inequalities.
The primary focus of the institute is the São Paulo coastal area, but it also supports adherent projects along the entire Brazilian coastline.
