These themes have been defined in three subtopics, which are:
Climate Change has the objective to coordinate and harness efforts in the region to counter the impacts of climate change, mainly by protecting the Amazon and its local populations identifying alternatives to strengthen regional cooperation.
Regional Development has the objective to promote economic and social development in integrated and sustainable Amazonian spaces by coordinating and disseminating public policies geared to job creation and income generation within a vision of sustainable economic development for the Amazon.
Energy has the objective to identify and exchange energy generation and consumption technologies that are adequate for the Amazon Region and preserve its ecosystems and landscapes, with full respect for the sovereignty of the Member Countries and taking into account their national laws.
Additionally, regarding these Emerging Issues, ACTO’s action incorporates the thematic content of the social component of the ASCA that was built from the decision of the Member Countries and the priorities accorded in the Declarations of their decision-making bodies.
Parallel to the formulation of a proposal for a regional cooperation project on the Emerging Topics, the following initiatives are underway:
- Support for ecological and economic zoning in the State of Roraima in Brazil
- Youth Contest: Discovering the Amazon
