AMAZON VISION 2021 REPORT SUMMARY

Speeches Shim

A healthy Amazon benefits everyone on the planet, especially those who live and work in the region. But the region faces serious threats: over the last four decades, the Amazon’s carbon uptake, biodiversity, and ecosystem productivity have declined. To address these threats and preserve the region’s ecosystems, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) developed the Amazon Vision in 2016. This framework establishes a concerted and strategic regional response across USAID’s efforts in Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Guyana, and Suriname. This report shares progress toward the Amazon Vision’s ongoing efforts to maintain a healthy and resilient Amazon basin.
