Latin America is a biodiversity superpower and Amazonia is perhaps its greatest natural capital asset. Amazonian forests provide ecosystem services that underpin food, water, energy and livelihood securities. Research shows that Amazonia’s forests are threatened by unsustainable land use practices and climate change, which could lead to large-scale impacts on ecosystem services. Maintaining the integrity of Amazonian ecosystems while reducing poverty and vulnerability is a key challenge for the region.
