About this Event

The Amazon is facing a crucial tipping point of deforestation and degradation that would be devastating for Brazil and the world. We have now the chance to change course and keep the precious forest standing to safeguard the future of life on Earth. The New Economy for the Brazilian Amazon (NEA, in PT), an initiative led by WRI Brazil and The New Climate Economy, in partnership with more than 75 researchers from multiple organizations,  offers a roadmap for a low-carbon, deforestation-free future which positions the Amazon region as a catalyst for decarbonizing the entire Brazilian economy.

As part of the LCAW 2024 program, we will be discussing how Brazil is currently shaping the new economy of the Amazon, the relevance of an inclusive bioeconomy as part of it, how to measure and value it models, which financial mechanisms are needed, as well as the key opportunities and challenges up in Brazil and globally.
