Posted in: 09/06/2023

The International Conference on the Amazon and New Economies , held by the Brazilian Mining Institute ( IBRAM ), took place between August 31st and September 1st, in Belém, and brought together world leaders, specialists and investors. 

The conference had the objective of debating the future of the Amazon Forest and discussing how, through the advancement of new economies , industries can contribute, creating a network of articulation and support for new economies, in addition to strengthening the Pan-Amazon alliance . 

Opening the event, the 8th Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), Ban Ki-Moon, emphasized the importance of preserving the environment to ensure a future for human life and that the way to achieve this is to achieve the Development Goals ( SDGs ) of the UN.

Among the more than 20 lectures given during the conference, Neidinha Suruí, leader of the Kanindé Ethno-environmental Defense Association , took the opportunity to demand a position on the Temporal Framework , which is being discussed in the STF, and reinforced the importance of dialogue between indigenous peoples , governments and private institutions. 

When dealing with new economies, Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, highlighted the need for a strategic plan for the Amazon that includes financing to combat climate change, but mainly with new alternatives that address the income generation allied to sustainable development, since the Amazon Forest is a great source of solutions. 

So that the subjects dealt with during the two days of the event are not forgotten, IBRAM confirmed the 2nd edition of the conference  for 2024.
