The Scientific, Social, and Economic Dimensions of Development in the Amazon
On September 24, 2018, the Wilson Center will host a full-day conference on the impact of the Amazon on global climate trends and current efforts to support sustainable development and conservation in the region, in partnership with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). During the morning session, leading scientists will present and debate their research and the implications for global climate. In the afternoon, representatives from key members of the private sector, non-profits, and international organizations will delve into the issues of sustainable development, biodiversity, and deforestation.
The conference in Washington, DC will be the second to explore these themes, following a full-day conference in Manaus, Brazil on August 16, 2018. To learn more, click here.
