The Amazon rainforest –one of the world’s major carbon sinks, home to the richest biodiversity of any ecosystem on the planet –is in crisis. Man-made fires are bringing the Amazon to a critical tipping point that will have irreversible consequences for people, wildlife, and the planet. If destruction of the rainforest continues, it could permanently change the region’s ecosystem and rapidly accelerate climate change across the globe. We have already lost more than 15% of Amazonia and continue to lose two million hectares of forest each year. Experts say we must alter course now to avoid the
irrevocable loss of Amazonia. To avoid this tipping point, we need to conserve 80% of the total Amazon rainforest –meaning we cannot afford to lose any additional hectares of forest.Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) own at least 25% of the Amazon. Strengthening IPLC management of these lands to better enable them to protect the forest they live in against growing development threats and climate change can be a solution to this crisis. Evidence shows that locally managed lands are the best protected from deforestation, including those lands managed by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. The project will be working with IPLCs located in the Amazon region from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Surinam.
