Indigenous people and local communities living in the Amazon play a crucial role in protecting the rainforest and its biodiversity. However, the pressure on Indigenous peoples and their territories is greater than ever:
deforestation, ecosystem degradation, extraction of natural resources, human rights violations, and territorial invasions.
All this on top of a global pandemic that not only affects the health of Indigenous and local communities but also exacerbates existing threats to their territories and resources.
Responding to this increasingly complex reality calls for urgent systemic changes that can only be achieved through collaboration by different actors at all scales. That’s where the All Eyes on the Amazon program comes in.
