Governance challenges for preserving the Amazon Region
According to the WWF, the Amazon Forest represents a fundamental ecosystem for the survival of the world population. This is because, almost a third of tropical rainforests left on Earth are in the Amazon region and nearly 10% of all wildlife species discovered up to now live there. Notwithstanding, governance gaps are structural and complex. Major challenges arise from deforestation and forest fragmentation with dramatic impacts on ecosystem deterioration and dysbiosis through biodiversity loss and contamination.
