AMAZONIA AGAINST THE CLOCK: A REGIONAL ASSESSMENT ON WHERE AND HOW TO PROTECT 80% BY 2025
The loss of Amazonian ecosystems impacts the planet and all forms of life and, in an inverse relationship, climate change affects the ways of life of indigenous peoples, their cultural and linguistic diversity, health and food security, and threatens to make up to 1 milllion species extinct. Expanding indigenous rights and territories is a global imperative that can mitigate the climate and biodiversity crisis as 80% of the world’s remaining biodiversity is on Indigenous homelands10. The international and national climate and biodiversity frameworks have systematically omitted the role of indigenous peoples, the knowledge systems that build their worldview and their values, preventing humanity from informing policy with ancient practices to combat climate change.

This research, developed since 2021 by the
Amazonian Network of Georeferenced Socio-environmental Information (RAISG) within the framework of the Initiative “Amazonia for Life: Protect 80% by 2025” with data from 1985 to 2020, yields a set of findings whose objective is to inform and guide global and national policy to achieve the protection of at least 80% of the Amazon by 2025. This report presents the main results based on updated information up to 2020 to provide a regional baseline that will allow transparent measurement of progress of this proposal. A detailed analysis at the national level will complement this analysis.
