The Amazon: Land, Climate, and Biodiversity

The world would be unthinkable without the Amazon – not just because of its biodiversity, its role as home to millions of Indigenous peoples, and its spiritual and aesthetic value, but also because limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius would be impossible without it.

In recognition of the Amazon’s crucial role in achieving the temperature goal set by the 2015 Paris Agreement, CLX focuses an entire line of work on the Amazon Basin, with an emphasis on Brazil. This includes, in particular, undertaking legal action and advocacy to stop the rapid deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. CLX has, for example, researched the connection between Brazilian beef (which, importantly, drives substantial deforestation in the Amazon) and slave labor for a partner organization.
