World-Transforming Technologies, with the support of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Institute for Climate and Society, recently performed a meta-analysis of studies carried out by Brazilian scientists at different universities across the country that have contributed to knowledge and potential innovations based on the Amazon’s social and biological diversity.

The goal was to map recent research papers related to the Amazon’s biodiversity, analyze the research’s potential and highlight potential applications for the development of the region’s bioeconomy.

The meta-analysis’ authors included Carina Pimenta, executive director and co-founder of the Sustainable Connections Institute (Conexsus) and director of CX Investimentos Socioambientais; Professor Tatiana Schor of Amazonas Federal University’s Geography Department; and Ricardo Abramovay, senior professor at the University of São Paulo Energy and Environment Institute.
