For nearly two decades, Amazon Watch has worked tirelessly with indigenous, frontline communities and NGO allies to stop destructive projects, hold governments and corporations accountable, and promote respect for indigenous rights. With your dedication and support, Amazon Watch continues to work relentlessly in support of our indigenous partners and to protect the Amazon rainforest.
The past year saw many important victories for our partners, yet the next several years will be critical to advancing rainforest protection, indigenous rights, and solutions to climate change such as clean, renewable energy. That’s why our four main program priorities for 2015 include: advancing protection of the Sacred Headwaters of the Amazon, keeping fossil fuels in the ground in the Amazon, supporting indigenous voices on climate change and rights-based climate solutions, and stopping future mega-dams in the Brazilian Amazon and promoting clean energy.
We cannot do this very important work without your help. Thank you for your continued support as we prepare to bring our indigenous allies to speak with global leaders at COP 21 in Paris this December.
