There is an urgent need to protect archaeological sites threatened by deforestation in the Amazon

Illegal land invasions, raging fires, the expanding agricultural and mining frontiers are not only destroying Amazonian lands and biodiversity, but also eradicating fundamental knowledge on land stewardship.

In this article for Climate Diplomacy, Adriana Erthal Abdenur and archaeologists Claide de Paula Moraes (Universidade Federal do Oeste do Pará), Eduardo Kazuo Tamanaha (Instituto de Desenvolvimento Sustentável Mamirauá), Fernando Ozorio de Almeida (Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro), and Bruno Pastre Maximo (Universidade Federal do Amazonas) highlight the key role of climate diplomacy in protecting archaeological sites, which preserve lessons from the past that could help the Amazon recover in the future.
