Bioamazon Newsletter Edition 16

Sep 21, 2022 | ACTO, Bioamazon Project, Bioamazon Edition 16 Jul-Aug

We invite you to discover some of the latest news from the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO) in the months of July and August.

On July 3, the 44th anniversary of the signing of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty (TCA) was celebrated. In these four decades, the TCA has remained current, allowing the advances of the substantive sustainable development agenda and the various transversal values, such as the centrality of the human being. The sovereign autonomy of the eight Member Countries coexists perfectly with
a modern and broad cooperation agenda, which allows ACTO to work on all thematic pillars, such as climate change, forests, biodiversity,
indigenous peoples, health, among others.

In August, we were pleased to see the approval of the two proposals for side events that we made to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which will hold its 19th Conference of the Parties from 14 to 25 November, in Panama.

Another very important activity was the presentation of the “Rapid Assessment of Biological Diversity and Ecosystem Services in the Amazon Basin/Region”. The webinar was held within the framework of the socialization strategy of this study, which had the contribution of more than 100 experts, scientists and academics from the eight ACTO Member Countries.
