The Amazon Forest plays a pivotal role in regulating global climate patterns. With an estimated 150-200 billion tons of carbon stored in the Amazon, the deforestation of the Amazon Forest presents both a major problem & a great opportunity.

Join us for this two-part event which will comprise an academic session that will discuss the role of the Amazon & how reforestation can be a cost-effective solution to capturing significant carbon emissions; & a policy session which will uncover innovative solutions through public policy to combat deforestation & protect the native vegetation of the Amazon Forest to reduce its tipping point. After presentations, participants will be able to ask questions & engage with the speakers through a lively debate.
