Faced with the advance of fossil fuels in the Amazon, this event aims to discuss and expose solutions and problems related to decarbonization, promoting economic and energy planning in the region, with an emphasis on the imminent climate challenges. In the Brazilian context, despite the positive discourse on renewable energies and the notable reduction in deforestation, significant investment in oil and gas jeopardizes not only biodiversity, but also intensifies climate impacts, directly affecting vulnerable populations. The cohesion between environmental discourse and political-institutional practices is crucial to demonstrating the effective protection of the Amazon to the world.
