AMAZALERT examined how global and regional climate and land-use changes will impact Amazonian forests, agriculture, waters, and people; and how these impacts feed back onto climate.
“The AMAZALERT project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 282664, and was co-funded by many national agencies an institutes.”
AMAZALERT had its final project meeting in Brazil in October 2014. This meeting was jointly organised with the ‘sister’-project ROBIN (www.robinproject.info, which studies the link between biodiversity and climate change mitigation for South-America.
The meeting was organised by INPE and EMBRAPA and took place on 6 - 10 October, 2014. Project members were invited personally.
