Webinar: Debt, climate crisis and extractivism in Amazonia

This virtual space is an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing communities in this region of South America.

As if it were a never-ending vicious circle, debt, the climate crisis and extractivism are three factors that have historically and exacerbatedly faced the Amazon countries. This situation has generated multiple crises at the social, environmental and economic levels.

In view of this, various social networks and organizations want to put on the public and national agenda the challenges faced by communities and territories, but also to provide an overview of opportunities for the civil and organized population, to know their demands and present possible potential solutions that provide a balance to this scenario.

That's why we've come together around the webinar. Debt, climate crisis and extractivism: Challenges and opportunities for Amazonian countries, a space to present experiences and case studies carried out in countries such as Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador and Suriname.

Present at this event were María Soledad Betancurresearcher at the Instituto Popular de Capacitación - IPC, talking about debt, climate and extractivism as threats to the Amazon and the need for funding to preserve this area.

The following also participated Marcos Nordgren, member of the Bolivian Platform Against Climate Change - PBFCC Zenaida Yasacama, member of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador - CONAIE, and Sharda Ganga, writer and director of the Surinamese NGO Projekta.

This initiative is part of a series of webinars on fair financing, organized by Latindadd, in partnership with Demand Climate Justice (DCJ).
