Alicia Guzman talking to BBC on Amazonia for Life: Protecting 80% of the region by 2025
August 16, 2023
Amazon Summit – a significant meeting of pan-Amazonic countries brought together by Brazillian President Lula – cemented 80% of Amazonia by 2025 as a united goal. Despite straddling urgent priorities, scandals and a tipping point of Amazonia, the countries came together for a conversation that could lead to a historic win for the Indigenous Peoples of Amazonia and the region.
Check out the full interview with Stand.earth’s Alicia Guzman (Co-Director of the Amazon Programs) on BBC news.
Since 2021, COICA, Stand.earth, RAISG, and other allies have been leading the Indigenous and NGO call to protect 80% of the Amazon by 2025. Initially endorsed by the IUCN in September 2021, Amazonia for Life: Protect 80% by 2025 is a scientifically verified approach to protecting Amazonia, and is supported by Amazonia’s largest Indigenous federation, Coordinator of the Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin (COICA).
