The Amazon rainforest is of vital importance to the planet. The largest tropical rainforest in the world, its trees support not only one of the richest biomes, but also regulate the weather patterns that are key for agriculture in the region and provide water across South America.

Alex Yannelli (Mar 23 2022 1:46AM) : this restates some of the importance of the rainforest - this is visited more in the other articles but it can affect weather/rain patterns that affect agriculture as well as it being one of the most biodiverse regions in the world

In the current climate emergency, the rainforest plays a central role in constraining the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon. Unfortunately, the forest and its ability to be part of the solution are in danger. The Amazon region currently faces four simultaneous crises that could compromise its capacity to help keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees C.

Alex Yannelli (Mar 23 2022 1:48AM) : the four reasons that follow this sentence are the reasons that the Amazon rainforest is important and why it must be protected - for climate, biodiversity, global climate impact on agriculture, and economic impact
  1. Becoming a net emitter: Deforestation and degradation directly emit greenhouse gases, threatening to turn the Amazon region from a carbon sink into a net emitter of carbon dioxide. A recent study conducted over the last decade shows that important parts of the forest have already become a source of CO2.

  3. Biodiversity loss: Ongoing fires and deforestation remove large parts of the natural habitats so vital to maintain biodiversity in tropical forests like the Amazon, according to a study published in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Environmental Science. Estimates suggest fires have already impacted the vast majority of the biome’s species. And deforestation, which has been increasing considerably in the last four years, also plays a part in biodiversity loss. Logging and illegal mining also pose a risk to the functions the forest environment can provide.

  5. Transitioning from forest to savanna: New studies suggest ongoing deforestation could lead the Amazon rainforest to a tipping point, where it no longer sustains itself and large portions would instead transition to a Savanna-like ecosystem. This would accelerate climate change and disrupt weather patterns throughout the continent, affecting agriculture in other regions of South America.

Avoiding these dire scenarios is in the interest of all nine Amazonian countries — Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela. Colombia, for example, has stepped up its already ambitious climate action plan (otherwise known as an NDC, or Nationally Determined Contribution), and convened the Leticia pact aimed at protecting the Amazon.

The country, an emerging economy, has a very different pattern of emissions when compared to high-income countries where most CO2 emissions come from the energy sector. It has a high share of hydro-renewables in electricity production — accounting for more than 64% of electricity generation — and the largest chunk of emissions comes from the Land Use sector — with more than 70% of emissions related to agriculture, deforestation and fires.

Alex Yannelli (Mar 28 2022 9:19PM) : 70% of emissions comes from agriculture, deforestation and fires - stopping deforestation also helps Brazil become a lower emissions country

Since the NDC is a commitment to reduce emissions, Brazil has two challenges: the first is maintaining its current legislation in order to avoid the legalization of the deforestation levels seen today; the second is halting illegal deforestation. This is one of the most critical and strategic climate actions Brazil can pursue to meet the Paris Climate Agreement while also avoiding dangerous tipping points in the Amazon rainforest.

However, the current administration submitted a disappointing climate action plan in December 2020. While Brazil committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 37% below 2005 levels in 2025, and by 43% below 2005 levels in 2030, adjustments to the 2005 baseline in fact transforms these into less ambitious targets than what the country committed to in 2015.

In a letter sent to President Biden in April, and again during his speech at the Leaders Summit, President Bolsonaro committed to curb illegal deforestation by 2030 — but whether this will be re-entered into the official climate action plan is yet to be seen.

A more ambitious NDC, officially submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change during or before COP26 in Glasgow in November, should explicitly include these targets and show the path to achieving emissions reductions. This would help demonstrate to the public and to the international community that the Bolsonaro administration is serious about these climate goals

An agribusiness powerhouse, Brazil’s agriculture and livestock industries represent at least a quarter of Brazilian GDP. However, unsustainable ways of producing commodities have resulted in more than 50 million hectares (123 million acres) of degraded pastureland in the country, equivalent to the size of Spain.

A 2020 WRI Brasil and New Climate Economy (NCE) study demonstrates that this would also bring several economic benefits. The restoration of 12 million hectares (29 million acres) of degraded pastureland could lead to an increase of $3.7 billion in additional agricultural production, alongside $144 million in additional tax revenues from the agriculture sector alone.

Finance is another crucial reason for Brazil to keep up with its climate commitments and protect the Amazon rainforest. The country has the expertise to drastically reduce deforestation. To do so previously the government has worked with civil society as well as the federal police, created the Plan for the Prevention and Combating of Deforestation in the Amazon, and conditioned finance and rural credit to compliance with the Forest Code, among other measures. Additional resources should come through transparent, climate-smart financing.

No sentence-level conversations. Start one.

The current economy of the Amazon rainforest is mostly extraction-based and the main source of income for local communities is turning forestland to pasture, crops and logging. However, studies show deforestation does not translate into well-being for people living in the Amazon, nor does reducing deforestation jeopardize agricultural production. There are methods to increase production without destroying the forest, like the recovery of already degraded areas (as mentioned previously).

In this sense, policies to stop deforestation are not enough; local communities need an alternative source of income. Discovering, piloting and scaling new economic cycles that add value to both the maintenance and preservation of the forest and to product value chains based on traditional knowledge — such as the açai and Brazil nut — will be key to preserving natural capital and doing better than business-as-usual.

Climate action in Brazil will be decided by the response to the current crises in the Amazon. The recent WRI Brasil/NCE report shows that a climate resilient economic recovery in the country, compared to business-as-usual, could deliver over two million additional jobs, a total GDP gain of $535 billion, and lower air and water pollution by 2030 — benefitting all Brazilians as a result.
