At the Amazon Summit held in Belém last August, countries of the largest tropical rainforest established a new common agenda aimed at promoting sustainable development and the conservation of forests, biodiversity, and water resources. This renewed regional commitment aims to drive urgent action to address the root causes of deforestation in the coming years and to contribute to the effective implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework and other international agreements.
