Amazonia Under Pressure 2020 took an X-ray of the main threats to the world’s largest tropical forest, and noted the progress of its deterioration. First published in 2012, Raisg now presents an update of data and analyzes, incorporating new themes and methodologies. The publication is the result of the work of ten technical groups that have generated 23 maps representing the entire region, apart from dozens of graphics and informative tables that facilitate the understanding of the socio-environmental complexity of the region, its conflicts, pressures, threats, as well as its importance for South America and the planet.
