Protect 80% of Amazonia by 2025

Protecting Amazonia is more than environmental issue but also a human rights one as well. With Indigenous land and water defenders being targeted for protecting their homes from unchecked logging, mining, cattle farming, and oil drilling, the call to recognize Indigenous Territories is more urgent than ever. Officially recognizing and protecting Indigenous Territories is the only way we can effectively protect Amazonia from reaching an irreversable tipping point as Indigenous Peoples have been the caretakers of these lands for millenia. 

There is scientific evidence which confirms that combined deforestation and high degradation have already reached 26% of Amazonia. Many parts of the once pristine ecosystem are already turning into a savannah – plains with sparse trees and no lush rainforest tree canopies.

The science is clear. And so is the pathway to protecting the Amazon. A coalition of Indigenous leaders from the Amazon basin, together with a group of global environmental organizations, including, are calling for the protection of 80% of the Amazon rainforest by 2025.

I support the call of Indigenous Peoples for a global pact for the permanent protection of 80% of Amazonia forest by 2025. Urgent action is needed to protect the future fate of Amazonia and the people that call it home. I stand in solidarity and call on elected leaders to support higher climate goals for the Amazon in alignment with "Amazonia for Life: Protect 80% by 2025" as defined in the Declaration of the Amazonian Indigenous Peoples.
