On May 22, in commemoration of International Biodiversity Day, the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO) is officially launching the Wakaya: Biodiversity Program for the Amazon Basin/Region website.
Wakaya was created within the framework of the BIOMAZ project, in partnership with the German government and ACTO, through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
Wakaya gathers information on the Biodiversity Program for the Amazon Basin/Region which is an important tool to help Member Countries meet their commitments under the Convention on Biological Diversity, the goals and targets for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In addition to other global agreements, such as those established in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
In addition, the Wakaya website has a collection of technical documents with valuable information about the region and data from the Amazon. In the Documents section, you can find the document on the Scope of the Rapid Assessment of Biological Diversity, the publication on the Program and the Guide for Systematization of Good Practices. The Technical Document of the Rapid Assessment of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, which compiles the work of more than 100 authors of the assessment, will be available soon.
The Wakaya website can be accessed through the ACTO/Programs website or by clicking directly on the link Wakaya – Biodiversity Program for the Amazon Basin/Region.
