The State Secretariat for the Environment (SEMA) is responsible for formulating, coordinating, and implementing environmental policies in Amazonas, as well as managing 42 Conservation Units. On the climate agenda, the department has been working to regulate pricing mechanisms for environmental services, especially in the construction of the carbon market.

The secretariat also has the Plan for the Prevention and Control of Deforestation and Illegal Burning (PPCDQ-AM), which guides inter-institutional strategies to combat environmental crimes, for the two-year period from 2023 to 2025. The department also coordinates cooperation with national and international governments for the environmental agenda of the state of Amazonas.
