Rapid assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services in the Amazon Region
The assessment report for the Amazon Region will focus on biodiversity and environmental/ecosystem services, considering the Region’s cultural diversity, its complexity and heterogeneity due to the various geological, geomorphological, climatological, hydrographic, and biological processes. Also, its global prominence will be taken into consideration owing to its megadiversity, multiculturalism, and for its variety of ecosystems, species richness and high endemism, since it is one of the areas with the greatest biodiversity wealth and home of about 10% of the world’s biological diversity.
