This event, hosted by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) & the Science Panel for the Amazon (SPA), will present an overview of the state of the Amazon, assessing the risk of the climate tipping points in the region, and the paradox between the Amazon’s extraordinary socio-biodiversity and its distance from the scientific, technological, and market frontier of the contemporary bioeconomy. Speakers will present an in-depth discussion on what the “tipping points” mean for the Amazon and the global world, the need for conservation and restoration, as well as challenges and pathways that exist to transition to a socially-fair and sustainable bioeconomy.
