Avoiding a tipping point in the Amazon requires safeguarding connected landscapes through an integrated approach that includes the conservation of key species and their habitats. This session will focus on four such approaches: maintaining free flowing rivers, conserving river dolphins and jaguars as an indicator of healthy and connected freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems respectively, and developing indigenous economies and enterprises. The session will feature leading youth representatives from Indigenous groups and the government and private sectors. These panelists will provide a fresh perspective on solutions needed to avoid a dangerous tipping point, develop recommendations for decision makers and identify opportunities to strengthen synergies among key stakeholders aiming to improve joint efforts in the Amazon.
